Review:

Coach Gurney has spent a lifetime accumulating baseball knowledge, and it comes pouring out of his book, Covering All the Bases. If you want to become a better player or a smarter coach, let Coach Gurney be your guide. --Mike Flam, Sportswriter, The New York Times

The pitching fundamentals included in Covering All the Bases helped me learn the proper mechanics and pitching techniques that have helped me get to where I am today. In fact, several of the drills that I do on an everyday basis with the Florida Marlins coaching staff are drills that were originally introduced to me by Coach Gurney. --Tom Koehler, Pitcher, Florida Marlins Organization

I applaud Coach Gurney's instructional methods and the manner in which he teaches the fundamentals of the game. He combines his knowledge of the game with a keen instinct to detect, and subsequently correct, a player's mechanical flaws. --Roy Krasik, Senior Director of Baseball Operations, Major League Baseball
