In the 1970s in Australia, Tee Ball was almost unknown. In 1976, a Baseball devotee with the help of the author and other members of the local baseball club began to create a Tee Ball League based on the American Little League system. The members of the new league had to be taught all about the game from the very beginning. Our author began the league president in its second year , developing it into a league of over 200 players on his retirement from the presidency in 1983. During that time he took on the role of chief coach and umpire and with help of others developed a manual designed to train each official about their role. Having coached, played and umpired baseball, he used that experience to write much of the coaching advice. For the Baseball purists, there may be suggestions in the coaching advice that they may want to dispute. But it is important to remember 95% of the parents and their children were new to the game. So the book details the coaching advice to Team coaches, team mothers, umpires, and scorers. Then it looks at how to teach the skills of the game to the players e. g. using a glove. To cap off the book, advice is given on fielding and batting tactics as well base running.

About the Author:

Rick Boyce took up Baseball at the age of 30 years after being asked to coach/manage a school baseball team in the first official high school Baseball competition in Brisbane in 1971. He was able, with the help of modified rules of the first competition and a baseball devotee, to coach his team to win the first ever Baseball premiership. This began his love of the game and followed with his involvement in the creation of the first Tee Ball League in Brisbane in 1976. He began as a helper in the first year and became its president in year two developing the concept into a league consisting of over 200 players when he retired from the Presidency in 1983. In 1981, with the help of several officials, he created a manual designed to help newcomers to Tee Ball and to the League. This manual found its way to many clubs and schools around Australia. During much of this time, he continued to coach high school Baseball and play, attending as many coaching clinics as he could to increase his knowledge of the gams and its coaching. His other passion is Australian Football which he played from age 10 years and coached for over 40 years at all levels of the school competition right up coaching in the National Australian Schoolboys Championships. Professionally, he finished his teaching career as the head of a Mathematics department in a large metropolitan high school where his school gained the reputation as a school of innovation in the teaching of Mathematics.
