First we need some info so we can really help you =)
For example, is your team ST or DT? Pitchers found, etc?

If you're just starting out, best place to start is by checking out Mike's guide which is stickied at the top of this section. About the best possible info you can get for starting out.

I agree w/ GoA that guide should be good for you.

Best tip I could give you is in that guide, that balanced training is the smartest way to go. I'm not an expert like alot of these guys but I find that my 8* team has had a winning record mostly because even at 8*, I find many teams around my ability level who still focus too heavily on one area and my balance tends to win out.

Specifically, too many people fall in love with a flashy offense and neglecting your defense isn't a good way to win.

My tip... be a dedicated trainer. That means every 24 hrs you are training your team. It could just be your 3 bench guys, but be there every 24 hours and you’ll do OK.
There are some great trainers in this crazy game and then there are some trainers like me… we just won’t stop training.
