Gallagher Baseball Do's & Don'ts
► Do decide what your reasons for joining Gallagher Baseball are. Do your research to determine if we can meet your needs. Ask people who will give you an unbiased opinion about our organization, not competitors.
► Don’t complain to the coach about playing time, position, batting order during the first two weeks of your season.
► Do give the coaching staff a minimum of two weeks of games and practices to get a feel of where your son fits in best.
► Don’t offer advice during games to your son or his coaches. Whether you agree or disagree with how things are being done, your son is in the hands of the coaches from the time you drop them off until the coach releases them after the game.
► Do enjoy the game for all its successes and failures. Failure is part of an athlete’s growth. Remember, he was chosen to play for Gallagher Baseball for a reason.
► Don’t ever approach any coach minutes before or after a game to complain about anything. Emotions run too high and the outcome is never a good one.
► Do reach out to a coach after a minimum 24-hour cooling off period. Be sure your issue is well founded because you may be jeopardizing the roster spot and future opportunities for your son.
► Don’t berate umpires or opponents from the stands—no matter the circumstance. That will be your fastest ticket out of the organization!
► Do cheer for your son/team or simply watch the game.
► Don’t think the grass is greener in another organization. I believe we are the best there is at providing development with class and integrity. That being said, each season our program adapts and adjusts to continually improve our service. Our coaches are held to the same standard as the players.
