Guest, Pat McMahon, New York Yankees Special Assistant for Player Development and Scouting, is among baseball’s best minds and hearts. He will address the following questions: 1. What does the game expect form a player at the professional level today? 2. How might that change in the near future? 3. How is it different from 5, 10, 20 years ago? 4. What weight do the Yankees place on the mental game when assessing for a player’s psychological and emotional toughness and game intelligence 5. How can a youth, HS and college coach and player benefit from knowing this? Pat’s reputation as a coach of character and sportsmanship is the foundation upon which he developed hundreds of players in his 25 years of coaching at Mississippi State-11 years, Old Dominion-5 years and Florida-6 years. His record including CWS appearances, conference championships and the high number of players who advanced to professional ball is testimony to Pat’s passion, knowledge and ability.
