From the Publisher:

Officially endorsed by the Little League Association, with a foreword from Orel Hershiser, Life Lessons From Little League --is an all-star guidefor Little Leqque parents and coaches who want to teach their children to become not only good players, but also good sports. The new cleats are purchased, the glove is perfectly broken in--you and your kid are all set for Little League, right? Well, maybe. What happens when he strikes out eight times in a row? What if the coach never plays her? Dr. Vince Fortanasce, a neurologist and psychiatrist, as well as a veteran Little League Coach, has lived through all of these experiences and more, and here provides good-natured, sound advice for parents, coaches, and Little Leaguers so that they can all enjoy the season. Life Lessons From Little League is for the 2.5 million children and their parents who flock to the fields as soon as winter's thaw is over. For the coaches, Fortanasce draws on his twelve years of coaching experience and offers constructive tips on building a team's strengths and potential. For the parents, Fortanasce draws on his background as a family doctor and psychiatrist and provides useful information on what they can physically expect from their six- or eight-year-old, and how to keep his spirits up when he lets (another!) grounder slide right through his legs. For all, Fortanasce's seasoned wisdom and wonderful vignettes make us realize that Little League is, in a sense, another classroom where children learn the valuable lessons of right and wrong, perseverance and the honored tradition of sportsmanship. Life Lessons From Little League is destined for the hall of fame.
