How to Deliver the Pre-Game Talk as a Baseball Coach

Part of the Coaching Baseball For Dummies Cheat Sheet

As a baseball coach, you talk to your players at every practice, but your pre-game talk is your last chance to get your players ready for their upcoming game. The pre-game talk is your chance to remind players of the goal and game plan in general terms and to get your players psyched up. The following tips can help you give an effective pre-game talk:

  • Meet with the team away from any distractions.

  • Keep the meeting short.

  • Focus on just a couple of main points.

  • Stress to the kids the importance of being good sports — no matter what happens on the field — and to show respect toward the umpires.

  • Exude confidence in their abilities.

  • Avoid using unfamiliar terms or introducing new strategies.

  • Conclude your talk by reminding players to have fun.
