In my opinion, San Marcos youth baseball is one of the best in Texas. What I mean by this is that they are consistently producing quality players at a young age, so that by the time they hit their mid to late twenties, they will have developed into baseball players that can play at a high level for their high school.
When I was younger, my brother and I would go to the summer baseball clinics offered by the San Marcos Youth Baseball League in San Marcos, Texas. This league has provided me with many memories and excellent games and continues to do so for me, my brother, and our friends.
The kid who would stay at the local field after practice and would run around with me all day long playing catch. The boy who had a bat and ball and ran into the outfield while throwing the ball, or throwing the bat and hitting the ball. All these memories are incredibly vivid in my mind, and I look back on those days like it was yesterday.
While I was at the San Marcos Youth Baseball League, we played a team from Round Rock. This team from Round Rock, Texas was absolutely loaded with youth players, and it was amazing the talent that they had.
One of the things that really drew me to the San Marcos youth baseball team was the fact that the coach, Brad Coughlin, has been coaching the boys there for almost five years. While he is a new coach, I felt he was able to develop the personalities of the players. At first I thought that his energy was a little bit too much, but after spending time with the boys I realized that he is a great coach.
Another player that stood out to me, as well as most of the rest of the players, were Brent Geiger. Brent had a unique personality to him. He was an extremely enthusiastic player and after practice would yell and talk at the same time with his teammates.
Brent Geiger had an insane arm and would always hit the ball hard every time he stepped on the field. As a matter of fact, it wasn’t until I saw him play for the first time that I actually had the opportunity to see him play live, because I don’t think he has ever even been on TV.
Overall, the San Marcos youth baseball program I played on was not just a hit, but a truly enjoyable experience. I had a blast playing with my brothers, and I still talk to some of my friends who played there. The coaches and the players are incredibly talented, and it shows in the way that they do what they do every day.
