hank smith is on the least favorite list. and wins hands down.
favorite coaches? give me a break! daddy is the favorite coach of all the kids. the kids who aren't fortunate enough to have a dad to coach would have to pick whoever is actually nice to them. Good luck with that.

I think all the coaches that take the time to help kids are #1. It takes alot of time and effort day in and day out. So to all you coaches my hats off to you!!

hank's a good person and has a passion for baseball. i wished my son would have played for him when he play baseball, the funny thing is when my son's team played hanks a few years ago. hanks boys were up 12-0. my son hit a home run and hank protested it saying he didn't touch second base. the umpire called my son back out on the field and showed hank were he drug his right foot over second base. he had the drag make on his cleat and showed him the drag mark on the base...lol but hank is a good coach. my son'e coach on the other hand should never be allowed to coach again, he didn't show up for half the practices.

I agree..Chris Ayers. He coaches my son in little league all-stars and at Morristown West.
Why did he leave the newspaper? Does anyone know?
A good board

Good idea--Brad Fullington. He takes the time to teach the kids on how to get better. He may have to give them some constructive criticism, but he turns right around and gives them a positive almost immediately. He truly cares about the kids. He is a great coach.

My son has played for Hank for the past 3 years and thinks the world of him. My son has never played all-stars or travel ball, but Hank has taught him more about baseball than any other coach he has had. I can't belive parents/people will get on here and talk so negatively about someone just because their kids team got beat by Hanks team, or their kid didn't get picked by Hank. I had never heard of Hank before my son played in minor league, but he is a good person and a good coach. I think people need to grow up and worry about something that really matters in life. I only hope my other son gets as good of a coach as Hank when he moves up to minor league. You people should be ashamed of yourselves for leaving the type of comments that you do on here.

Beautifully stated. Hank is the man. Everybody hates a winner though.

Stan Ballard was by far the best coach I have ever seen lead the kids. He was in a battle for his life but he always put the kids first. He lost the battle but in my mind he is always the winner.Thanks Stan for your leadership. you will be remembered always.

This is a great idea!!
Ricky Bruce comes to mind! I watched him in 2 games, one where he was the loser and one where he was the winner. He was awesome! He was always encouraging and teaching the girls!

i have one also coming into minor league next year. But Hank won't be around. Why would he want to coach wit all the negative crap he has had to put up with the last week or so. The parents make coaching such a disappointment.

This is a much more positve board than the other one that has 500 posts. IMO- Brad Fullington is one of the best baseball coaches I have seen. He really knows the fundamentals and technical parts of teaching the game. He has helped my son with pitching, hitting and the mental part of baseball. He has also yelled at my kid for not giving his all, but always seems to talk to him afterward and tries to turn it into something positive or at least a learning experience. This is a sign of a coach that really cares about the development of the kids he coaches and not just baseball.
