No matter how much time I set aside to plan, there’s always a scramble to set the lineup and position players before a game. The lineup comes easier throughout the season, because you know where your run production is going to come from. However, setting positions in youth leagues, making sure everyone plays a fair amount, and keeping up with local rules of infield and out field play becomes “baseball suduko” by default.
Do the math; if your youth league plays 7 inning games and there’s 11 players on the team… that’s 77 decisions that have to be made, and made with a fair assessment of talent, and team strength. You can either come to the game prepared or you can wing it inning by inning. I’ve done both, and don’t recommend winging it. Ever.

We created this app to make the process easier for youth league coaches. It’s all about pre-game preparation, the prep time no one sees. It’s been a long time in development, and a long time coming. Believe me, just two years ago there were really no apps around to solve this problem, and now there’s more to choose from. It’s good to know I wasn’t the only coach thinking there had to be a better way.
