- I've been coaching since 1980. I was a board member for a baseball/softball organization in a small town in Illinois. I later helped start what is now the largest fastpitch organization in Illinois.
I have also made many, many mistakes in coaching teams and my own daughters. No one was a crazier "Crazy Dad" than me.
