With an emphasis on instilling a love for the game, this handbook instructs parents and coaches on teaching the basics of baseball to young players. More than 80 photos demonstrate the proper techniques for hitting, fielding, and pitching, and appendices of games and drills reinforce the lessons in ways that children will enjoy. Taking into account the differing needs of players by age, the authors provide separate discussions for young children and adolescents.
