TC 174: Butch Chaffin, Cookeville (TN) HS (part 2)

The way he was reeling off the one-liners, bleeding passion, and sharing wisdom, we just had to have Butch Chaffin back for a part 2. Coach Chaffin has had a successful run for two decades at  Cookeville (TN) High School and is known across the nation for his work with USA Baseball.

Some of the great insights from Coach Chaffin in part 2 of our interview:

  • “Communication is not what you say, but what they hear.”
  • “Chaos creates clarity.”
  • “We practice at stress speed.”
  • “There’s no pizza party on the mound.”
  • “The coach is the only guy who can keep it fresh.”
