I know HS coaches are not the most popular people on this site but I am going to ask for some advice. I just want to see if my thinking is anywhere near correct.
I coached almost 20 years ago when I was fresh out of college, where I played baseball for a couple years. Local HS asked me to coach when no one else wanted to. I basically used baseball knowledge to help build better fundamentals. Very lucky that there was a local pitching coach that was willing to help. (I know pitching is the thing to fix.)
This year I took a teaching job at a small school and was asked to coach again. The game has changed a lot so I have been trying to study as much as possible before the season starts. Indiana is a spring sport. My thought to rebuild a 4-20 something team is start with defensive fundamentals and find a pitching coach (may have a former D1 player help).
Obviously everything has to be worked on but I would think there has to be some priorities and an order of operation to get there.
Thanks for any suggestions.
