    For 3 years I have asked this question, it is embarrassing. 3 straight strike outs on 12 pitches...2 strike outs and didnt EVEN swing the bat...Ranked 2nd in pitching 13th in batting. Were SOFT like Holbrook...

    But how much say did Buscher have during the game???

    Take sign? Hit sign? Bunt sign? Strike out sign? Pop up sign?

    Was he actually able to make calls while coaching at first or from the dugout??

    We haven't been hitting all year so I'm not sure it matters

    Buscher was a volunteer coach. How do you not have a paid assistant that is a hitting coach? NGU has a paid pitching coach, hitting coach and fielding coach...two of which we are very familiar with.

    It was. Baseball, unlike football or other sports, tend to have "Blurred" roles vs Very defined roles. So since Buscher was the "Hitting" coach, they'll go find the best coach they can, then designate a hitting coach based on who all is on staff. Meyer is pretty much the only one who's strictly designated to one role... And that's cause he's the shit!
