Hit Run Steal sat down with 10-Time Gold Glover and Atlanta Braves Hall of Famer Andruw Jones to talk about how he develops his own son as a baseball player. In this interview, we get in-depth about how Andruw talks to his son about making adjustments as a hitter. One of the biggest takeaways from this interview for any Parent or Coach is to let their players make their own adjustments with some help. The player has to be able to feel what they are doing wrong so they can correct it themselves.
Andruw Jones is a former Major League Baseball player and Nippon Professional Baseball Player. Andruw spent 17 seasons with the Atlanta Braves (where he is an Atlanta Braves Hall of Famer), Los Angeles Dodgers, Texas Rangers, Chicago White Sox, New York Yankees, and the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles. Andruw is widely regarded as one of, if not the best defensive outfielders to ever play in Major League Baseball. Andruw won the Rawlings Gold Glove Award and astonishing 10 times as the best defensive outfielder in baseball. Andruw also won the Silver Slugger Award and the Hank Aaron Award in 2005. He was voted an MLB All-Star five times during his career.
Our goal at Hit Run Steal is to have every child play baseball/softball at the highest level they choose. Over the past few weeks, I hit the road and talked to people at all levels of the game. MLB Coaches, MLB Gold Glove Winners, Elite Travel Coaches, and Top Instructors to get their thoughts on youth sports. We cover Fundamentals, Coaching, Parent Involvement, Multi-Sport Vs One Sport and Much, Much, More. I hope you enjoy the interviews.
