As a baseball coach, you enjoy when your team wins and suffer when they lose. Win or lose, though, you need to talk to your players after the game. After the baseball game is over, your post-game talk should cover the following points:

  • Be upbeat and applaud the effort everyone put forth.

  • Point out the positives and recognize the displays of good sportsmanship.

  • Don’t allow the scoreboard to dictate how you talk to your players.

  • Wrap up the talk on a high note, conclude with a team cheer, and send the kids home with a smile.
