Skilled and caring mentors open up the richness, value, depth and breadth of life to us on and off the field of play. Guest Victor ‘Bubba’ Cates*, 12 year head baseball at University of Tennessee at Martin continues to lives the values of those who mentored him. In his 21 years as a college baseball coach he has paid it forward by skillfully mentoring many players and fellow coaches. Among his many honors and awards, is the prestigious Jerry Kindell Character in Coaching which he received Jan 8, 2011 at the American Baseball Coaches Association convention. In this show Coach Cates and I team up to provide information and tips on these mentoring points: choose a mentor, how to mentor, and how to wisely use a mentor.
