Well I don't think they have to, but I think that it would be a benefit for the team if the coach has had an experience of playing the sport himself.

What are some things i may need to know about baseball?

If you're watching, you really don't need to know anything. You can learn as you watch the game. If you're playing, the coaches should tell you what you will need to know. If you want to be an umpire or scorekeeper, you need to know the rules. If you're announcing, you should know the team, the players, and some interesting facts and statistics about the teams and players. If you're coaching, you should know the rules and some fundamentals and strategies.

Should coaches make 12yr cry after game?

A good coach? No. The problem with many youth coaches and parents is they act like the girls are playing under a million dollar contract. They fail to understand that a coaches job is to instruct, teach, educate, and motivate a player. I've coached travel teams for years and have heard coaches and parents speak badly about a players decision making and playing ability with no regard to whether the player has every been instructed on what to do in a given situation. Remember we should all play and coach because we love it and we want to not because we have no choice.
