Why This Site was Created
Here are the main design goals for www.CoachBaseball.info:
Provide timely access to the video footage from the original How to
Coach Baseball to Kids video. Especially as seasons are about to start,
many coaches are interested in the the video, but worried that the tape would
not arrive through the mail in time to help. The web site offers a convenient
way to get instant access to the material.
Expand the material to help veteran coaches in addition to the
novice coaches that the original video tape (now also available in DVD format)
was intended for.
Provide complementary materials. Rocket Norton has used his many
years of coaching experience to develop additional drills and tips for players
and coaches. Only a small portion of the new material is on the site today, so
www.CoachBaseball.info will grow
considerably over time.
Make use of the recent advances in Internet technology that now
offer many convenient and interesting possibilities for sharing expertise.
It is only recently when it has become practical to offer video
on the web at high quality and it is still difficult to match the quality of
the original video in a presentation that the average visitor can view online.
We are getting there, though :-)
For many, www.CoachBaseball.info will be considered as a
convenient complement to the original How to Coach Baseball to Kids
