On offense, Manager Little encourages selflessness at the plate and intelligence on the bases while emphasizing the importance of accumulating quality at-bats. Defensively, he wants solid fundamentals so the pitching staff can pitch to contact instead of the strikeout. Behind the plate, he wants catchers to have the opportunity to call pitches and defensive alignments by themselves.
