Our game remains the same but the dynamics of how we coachand teach it, what we can measure and then train accordingly is ever-changing. This week's show connects us with the Coordinator of Skill Development for MLB's Los Angeles Dodgers, Shaun Larkin, who offers his perspective on how we can challenge status quo in our practice designs, taking a more holistic view of developing the entire person not just the ballplayer plus his unique background on understanding behavior and its effects on development. Our listeners will be challenged by Larkin’s offerings of how the Dodgers have turned practice planning on its head, found new ways to create game-like environments and explore opportunities to prepare their players differently.
