ALWAYS look your coach in the eye
Nothing frustrates a coach more than a player who can’t look him in the eye, especially if it happens consistently. Even if you are the worst player on the field, looking your coach in the eye consistently shows that you know how to respect your elders, and it shows that you are focused, and that you have a desire to get better and a desire to learn. The respect that you show in doing so will put you in a better position to succeed on your team regardless of the level you are playing.
When you look your coach in the eye you show him that he has 100% of your undivided attention. Part of looking your coach in the eye is in the way you take a knee when he is addressing the team. You need to look strong and focused, not weak and distracted. You should sit up tall on your knee, not slouched down looking at the ground and twiddling with the grass. This is another one of the little things in baseball that makes a BIG difference in how any coach will see you.
