9780071455015: Basic Baseball Strategy: An Introduction for Coaches and Players

A comprehensive guide to baseball fundamentals that helps players and coaches build winning teams together

Watching major-league baseball today, many fans wonder what happened to the fundamentals of the game when they see a highly paid outfielder miss the cutoff man or a multimillion-dollar pitcher fail to lay down a bunt. What's missing are the basics--and that's precisely the content of this classic bestseller.

Updated and revised to address today's baseball rules and trends, Basic Baseball Strategy helps you, whether you’re a beginning coach, a player from a youth or advanced league to master the fundamentals of the game--from the hit-and-run to the squeeze play, from when to steal to when to sacrifice. Former collegiate coach S. H. "Chuck" Freeman explains not only how to execute baseball's most basic plays but also why and when to do so.

From the Back Cover:

Play smart, win big

Whether it's Little League or the major leagues, the team that plays smart and executes proper fundamentals on the field most often goes home the winner. As legendary St. Louis Cardinals' slugger Stan Musial wrote in his introduction to this classic bestseller, "The fundamentals (and the fun) must come first."

For coaches and players at all competitive levels, Basic Baseball Strategy gives you a solid understanding of the game's basics and provides you with the necessary tools to improve individual and team skills. Its strategy and play situations are exactly the same whether the game is played in Yankee Stadium or at your local youth-league park.

Complete with dynamic photos and illustrations, this book has been completely updated to teach you when, why, and how to:

  • Take a pitch
  • Lead off and run the bases
  • Attempt a squeeze play
  • Call for a hit-and-run
  • Steal bases
  • Execute proper cutoffs
  • Determine batting order
  • Communicate with signs

. . . and many other ways to put a "W" on your scorecard.
