Coach Baseball Right
Educator, Coach, and Founder of Coach Baseball Right!
With about 40 years of coaching varsity baseball at St. Louis University High School, running his Youth Baseball Camp for almost 30 years, and many more years playing, including collegiate ball at St. Louis University, Steve has developed a system of teaching baseball which emphasizes fundamentals and positive development, both athletically and personally.
Furthermore, Steve’s experience officiating NCAA basketball has provided his players and parents perspectives in approaching competition and sport that only few can provide. And when you add that Steve has a Master of Science in Computer Science and teaches computer science courses and has created curriculum at St. Louis University High School, Webster University, Fontbonne University, Jesuit Virtual Learning Academy, among many other schools you can see why Steve states:
“Sports are important, and everybody wants to win and you shouldn't apologize for winning, but winning is not the most important part of coaching and what people should be after…you see sports give us the opportunity to use challenges and obstacles to help us all grow into better people...we just have to be smart enough to learn from the lessons the game provides.”
On a more personal level, Steve has raised and coached four children and now has beautiful grandchildren running all around. With all of these experiences, Steve thinks that he has been blessed to be able to grow and learn as an exceptional father, a caring and loving grandfather, a teacher, and as a coach.
Though he does not like to tout his experience and would rather have Coach Baseball Right speak for itself, Steve's experience can be summarized by the following:
--39 years as Varsity Head Coach at St. Louis University High School
--28 years of running Youth Baseball Camps
--Former NCAA D-1 Men's Basketball Referee
--Greater St. Louis Amateur Baseball Association Hall of Fame Member

The 9 Fun Practice Games Your Kids will Love!12,99 $
Over the 38+ years of coaching baseball, all the baseball drills I used and all of the practice templates I have created, as well as camps and coaching different levels and ages of kids, I have learned some valuable things about how to run a baseball team.
I want my players to smile and have fun!
Youth Baseball Practice has to engage kids while helping them learn the game step by step. We encourage all youth baseball coaches to implement fun game in their practices that teach the kids how to compete, learn the parts of the game, and get them wanting to come back to practice!
So below are some “MUST DOs” and some fun games for baseball practice.
--Fun games MUST always incorporate fundamental drill techniques. Otherwise it is a waste of time for players and the coaches.
--Coaches should change their expectations slightly on a player by player basis depending on skill and ability.
--The younger the team, the more games there MUST be at practice (but make sure #1 is met).
--For older kids (13 years old +), incorporate games before and/or after the scheduled baseball drills – Kids are never too old for games! Just modify the priority of it in practice.
--Coaches should change out fun games each practice to keep kids engaged and practice different.
Here are the games included in this package:
Outfield Throwing Game
Hit the Hat
