- Cal Ripken, Jr. Answers Questions From The Field
A) What are your thoughts about parents or coaches who steal signs from their opponents and use smartphones to communicate those signs to their players or coaches?
- First of all, I don’t ever think that relaying another team’s signs to batters is a good idea no matter how it is accomplished. If, by chance, the person relaying the pitches to the batter provides bad information – which is entirely possible – the batter doesn’t stand a chance. As a hitter I didn’t want anyone telling me what was coming, because you never know when the other team is on to your game and has changed up its signs.
- As for the cell phone issue in general, I don’t think that cell phones ever have a place on athletic fields or during athletic competition. Yes, it is a great idea to have a cell phone on hand in case of an emergency, but if we as coaches are asking the kids to give us their full attention for up to two hours, I believe that we owe them the same. If we are on the phone in the middle of a game – for whatever reason – what kind of message does that send?
B) How do you determine if your child, who is just starting out in baseball or t-ball, is right-handed or left-handed?
