A tool for youth baseball coaches, to save you tons of time and keep you organized and informed. Also works great for softball, kickball, etc.

I've been coaching little league baseball for over 6 years. I've tried paper scorebooks, spreadsheets, and smartphone apps but nothing worked quite the way I wanted.

The season starts with practices. Pocket Baseball Coach provides an attendance keeper for practices. I don't know about you, but I reward players who show up for practices. Simply check off who is present, and now you have that information for later when you are planning your lineup.

In baseball, rain happens. You probably need to send out a quick notice to parents and players when an event gets canceled or delayed, when you're at the field away from your computer. You can store 2 emails and 2 mobile phone numbers for each player, and in seconds blast out a team email or text message. Parents appreciate that!

Planning the lineup for games is what I used to spend alot of time on. In little league, players will often play different positions throughout a game. A good coach will think this through carefully ahead of time, and lay out each position for each inning, including bench time. (Of course, changes may occur based on game situations, and being able to quickly change this on the fly is a great feature of this app.) How often did your lineup accidentally include two left fielders and no center fielder? Doh! Pocket Baseball Coach will clearly highlight positions in red when you mess up.

I also like to consider how often each player has played in the infield, in the outfield, sat on the bench, etc. when planning the lineup. You have all of this information at your fingertips now! When you're done, you can print a lineup sheet directly from your phone or email it to another coach.

For younger leagues, you may just want to randomize the fielding positions, and you can do that too.

I've long ago given up trying to decypher scorebooks when tracking batting averages etc., so I would always write my own notes on an index card, and plug that into a spreadsheet later. As a coach, you care about batting RESULTS. With a couple screen taps, you can quickly and easily record a batting result: single, strikeout, fielders choice, whatever. Very simple, anyone can do it with no training. Later, you can pull up all the important batting statistics.

It's very important to keep track of how many pitches each pitcher has thrown, and there is a pitch counter built in. It also tracks balls and strikes, walks and strikeouts, hits and outs, and runs.

Of course, a baseball coach usually coaches multiple teams over the years, and Baseball Pocket Coach supports as many teams as you want. You might play softball yourself and want to track your own batting stats but not the entire team, you can do that! Some parents might want to use Pocket Baseball Coach to track their own child's stats, and use the group email and texting features. Trust me, it's way easier to use than the "free" apps out there! (Nothing is free if it gives you a headache to try to use it : )

With Pocket Baseball Coach you can print or email a ton of reports directly from your iPhone or iPad. You can also broadcast your lineup to another device running this app over bluetooth! Geek out all the way and use an iPad in the dugout for your players to see, while you make changes on your iPhone.

You can also Import and Export player roster from (stats do not transfer), and post game updates to Twitter or Facebook from inside the app.

Pocket coach for the win!


For "coaching" (managing) a very competitive jack and Jill softball team; with tournaments, regular league games, practices, and 16 team members on the roster, this app was there for me. Making it super easy to have players tell me weeks in advance that they wouldn't be at this or that game, such and such tournament, and just being able to so "ok I got it" and swipe their name off that specific game/tournament took all the guess work out of "who's going to be there?."
The amount of game winning batting line up's I was able to write because of the batting averages it kept up with was just awesome! Seeing whose had more fielding time than others, and who needs to get some fielding time in too was just fantastic! It took all the guess work out of the season, and really helped me keep it fair and win a lot of games.
I highly highly recommend this app! Best pocket coach you'll ever need.

2016Updated version: still just as awesome as ever! A little glitchy here and there, but still my go to coaching app that keeps me and my team on top of it for each and every game, practice & tournament.

Great little app & getting better


Great little app & getting better. Used it all last season and kept good stats on every player which is good when all star selection time rolls around because there is no question who to send. Not to mention it really shows you what you need to work on throughout the season. If they added defensive stats and a couple other little things it would be almost perfect. Looking for more good things before this season starts! Keep up the good work.

Great assistant coach!


Just downloaded this in advance of our first Tournament this weekend. Pretty simple once you get the idea of how to set up and view various options. I emailed with a question and got a response back quickly. Some new features in the works that will make it even easier. So nice that I can share easily with team manager and other coaches, scorekeeper, etc. Looking forward to being able to track some simple stats on our team as well
