About the website:
It is for the All-star players and familys to use. There will be helpful baseball fundamentals and videos. Upcoming schedules, highlights, stats, affilations, humorous antidotes, and any pictures you send to me. Joining the 12U this year will be the 10U All-stars, with anything that Coach Alfredo sends me.
AND music videos some will have a meaning,
others because I LIKE THEM. Hope you ENJOY.
I am first and foremost a player development coach. I’ll teach the basic fundamentals of pitching, hitting, and defense. When the All-stars are accomplished at that we will move onto advance fundamentals. In games I bat ALL, I rotate defensive positions. Every All-star will play innings on defense; ALL All-stars will set out at least 1 inning. My goal each and every year is to have a competitive All-star team, and win games.

How was the term shortstop derived, (think about it, all the other positions are by location –i.e. - first baseman or duties -i.e. - catcher?
When baseball first was played, the general rule was, there were 4 outfielders. For better coverage, 1 of the outfielders was brought in to the infield between second and third. At first they were called short fielder, then short stopper, then shortstop. That is why there position number is 6, (as in the sixth infielder, or the first outfielder).
Another fact: scorebook position numbers.
1 – pitcher
2 – catcher
3 – first baseman
4 – second baseman
5 – third baseman
6 – short stop-per
7 – left fielder
8- center fielder
9 – right fielder
