A Complete Baseball Practiceby Tim Kafer
This course will show you how to run an effective youth baseball practice using professional practice methods.
Coaches Jack Grant and Derek Lindquist walk us through a portion of their youth team practice and also a portion of their high school teams practice. In this course, they cover throwing drills, outfielders priorities, pitchers fielding practice drills, batting practice drills, rundowns, individual drills for catching, fielding, throwing and hitting, along with several others.
Derek Lindquist attended Sarasota High School in Sarasota, Florida. He pitched for 3 years at the University of Georgia and pitched in the College World Series his junior year. He also hit 20 home runs that year. He was drafted #1 (6th pick overall) by the Atlanta Braves and pitched professionally for 10 years. He feels the game has given him so much he wants to give something back and that was the motivation for Baseball Excellence. He has been the Pitching Coach at Vero Beach High School and is currently the St Louis Cardinals Bullpen Coach. Derek is a family man with two children.
"Coach" Jack Grant played baseball at Florida State and has coached for over 30 years. The majority of his players who began and remained with his program the last 10 years have gone on to play in college or professional baseball. Clinton Johnston was drafted #1 by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1998 and Jack has coached several players who went on to become college All-Americans. "Coach Grant is simply one of the finest amateur baseball coaches in Florida." In addition Coach Grant has worked as a Professional Scout.
