Parent & Coach Feedback:

I heard multiple kids give raving reviews! …one of the kids parents later said quote, ‘your bat speed has improved by 20 percent’ …the Dad said it was clearly noticeable! - Quinn, Parent, Coach

Mark- Peter now plays for one of the top tournament teams in Colorado and has emerged as one of the top pitchers in the state. He mentions you often. Peter would never have advanced to his current level of play without your coaching. 
- Tom, Parent, former LL Coach in Seattle 


The Expert in 12u Instruction

Baseball Positive is the only training provider in the area focused entirely on the game played by players ages 12 and Under.

Prior to starting Baseball Positive a dozen years ago, Mark Linden played professionally in the Cubs Organization, and coached at the college levelfor eight years (five as a Head Coach). This includes two seasons working on the staff of a man recognized as one of the greatest College coaches in history,Gene Stephenson, at Wichita State.

The objective of BP, since its inception, has been to help make the youth baseball/softball experience better for all kids.

In large part this is dependent on the teaching and practice environment created for the players. Clear, and easy to understand, instruction that players can digest and convert to improved play on the field is the cornerstone of BP instruction. ...and always keeping it active and fun.

Active, Fun and Quality instruction...

Good afternoon Mark, 
I wanted to reach out and say thank you for your work on the Baseball Positive website and the Coaching Guide...

As the manager of the 2018 Northwest team that recently participated in the LLWS in Williamsport, PA, I wanted to personally say thank you. Our team adopted almost everything you published in your coaching guide...

...I cannot express my gratitude enough for your efforts...leagues around the country would be wise to adopt your teaching if they wish to teach sound, fun baseball.

Yours in Baseball,
