The Benefits Of Coached
As a teacher, it pains Kansas City Royals coach Dave Eiland to see so many youth players using defective mechanics. Not only can such mistakes hurt their development, it could lead to injury. Dave said:
"“They don’t have the basic foundation of a proper throwing delivery, just throwing a baseball off flat ground and then off a mound. You can obviously help someone, number one, prevent injury throwing the ball the correct way, delivering a pitch the correct way, so help their command, and help them build arm strength if they’re doing it the correct way.” “They can send this video in, and it’s almost like being right there with them.”"
For most, Coached will be a way to help kids experience the joy of playing youth baseball with enough skill to feel a part of the team. Those experiences could turn a young person into a baseball fan, or they could begin friendships that transform their lives—just like Robin and Will.
"“We had a user the other day after buying a lesson said, ‘This is amazing, I’ve never seen my kid be so engaged and get so excited for one lesson.’ So he bought a four-pack the next day. And just seeing the difference between that kid’s first swing and the next swing. And then his dad coming back and telling us his kid went 3 for 4 with two doubles.”"
Coached is the 21st century way to pass on your love for the game to the next generation.
For the fortunate few, Coached could be the first step of what could become a major-league journey. For those with the gifts to grow in the game, Coached could prevent poor fundamentals from obscuring their talent when the precious opportunity to advance comes.
How many Bryce Harpers, Mike Trouts, or even role players like KC Royals outfielder Paulo Orlando never develop because they didn’t get the opportunity to learn the game? Coached is trying to cut down what must be a world of lost talents that miss out on a major-league career because they lack the basic instruction needed to succeed.
You can make sure that doesn’t happen to any young person in your life by telling them to download Coached from the Apple store. You could be opening the door to more dreams than you can imagine.
