Review:

When signing his eldest son up for Little League baseball, Ned McIntosh was told he'd have to find a coach if he wanted his son to play. So McIntosh stepped up to the plate and, with little guidance, began coaching. That's probably how most people become Little League coaches, and they often feel at a complete loss as to where to start. Written by a father/coach for other parent/coaches, Little League Drills and Strategies teaches coaches how to help their players enjoy the game--as well as develop the skills they need to win. Well-illustrated drills focus on the essentials--batting, base running, fielding, etc.--while other chapters teach novice coaches how to deal with competition and overbearing parents. An excellent resource for coaching neophytes as well as seasoned managers. --Sunny Delaney
