COYBL is a large part of many families in Mililani. We spend a large amount of our time and energies around the baseball game and the 
Marlins Tickets team. We have opportunities to bond to other families and spend with many hours cheering and eating with the team and their families. 
Has COYBL had a personal affect? Are there questions about COYBL that need to be asked? Please visit frequently and post views

What We Don't Want to See Our Youth Baseball Coaches Doing- A Top Ten List

1. Calling a player, "Hey you".... At least make the effort to learn the names of all your players. It is not good for the child's self esteem to be called "Hey You"!

 

2. Making practice go on forever. Everyone has a life, I bet even you do, Coach. There are homework, chores, dinner and general wind down time needed by the young players. If you can't get in all the drills in the allotted time, get more assistants so you can run more stations. Use your parents, they are willing to help.

 

3. Criticizing and chastizing players on the field in front of parents and other players. That includes public displays of disgust and disappointment. You are the adult here and you need to set the example for good sportsmanship. Add to this...no swearing.

 

4. Yelling at their kid. Stop this. This is a way to destroy your relationship with your child and also see the point above.

5. Arguing with the umpire. Sure, make certain the ump knows when he is applying the rules wrong, but don't bother arguing play calls. Umpires are human and they make mistakes. Coaches should also discourage the parents from heckling the umpires, no matter what.

 

6. Favoring their child. Most coaches make an effort in this area, but not always. Use your players without discrimination. If your child is not the best player for that valuable position, use the player that is. It really is obvious to everyone, not just the good player's parents.

 

7. Using alcohol. Use discriminitively and conservably. Children should not see behavior that would not take place if alcohol were not consumed.

 

8. Thinking every player should be available whenever. There are school activities, family activities, church, other lessons and sports activities. Do not penalize the player if they are not able to drop everything and attend an unscheduled baseball activity.

 

9. Encouraging escalating potlucks. See #8 above. Baseball games should not have to go on beyond 4 hours. Also be aware that not all families can afford the big and expensive food spreads.

 

10. Comparing one player to another. A team sport is supposed to teach cooperation and collaboration.

 

The majority of the coaches in the league are excellent leaders and examples of sportsmanship!  This top ten list is not the norm at COYBL.

 

 

End to a Great Summer Season

August 13, 2006

This was the last weekend of summer league play.  Now we get a short break to get into the swing of doing homework, long neglected piano lessons and other activities until practice starts up again for the Fall season.  Not to mention yard work!  Hope you all had fun at your end of the summer potlucks!

New Web site

July 17, 2006

A very welcome addition! We noticed what seems to be the Official COYBL website that became effective in late June. Not that we want to lose our faithful readers who have been logging into our website and visiting our sponsors. Please continue to come back. Remember, our content reflects your input...so if you know anything going on in COYBL that you think should be discussed, please email us! Please bookmark this site and continue to visit us regularly. And since we are the Unofficial site, we can afford to be irreverent, if we see the need (BG).

Got a Broken or Hand-Me-Down Glove?                   

Here's a great guide to fix it up to almost new condition.  Save the cost of a new glove.  A new glove can cost $100's of dollars, fix it for a fraction of the cost.  CLICK HERE  to read more about "FIX THAT GLOVE"

As a baseball or softball player you’ve probably had this happen at least once during your playing years.  You field the hard grounder or hard line shot only to find the ball stuck in the back of your glove or in the web of your glove.  Worse yet, the ball goes right through your glove.  You look down at your glove only to see the a torn or broken lace hanging out of the back of the glove.  And now, every time you field a ball, there’s a hole or gap that gets bigger and bigger with every ball.
