Baseball great Ozzie Smith, a former All-Star shortstop, teaches a variety of baseball fundamentals in this lively yet educational video. Demonstrating basic skills, Smith gives sound guidance in an easy-to-understand manner, illustrating particular actions with the help of Little Leaguers. The tape begins with a regimen of warm-up and stretching exercises, and quickly moves into individual lessons designed to give a young baseball player a solid grasp of the game's finer points. Specific skills that Smith teaches, such as the proper way of running the bases, turning a double play, and reading the pitcher, will, if properly implemented, make any youngster who takes this video seriously into a better player. The tape assumes that the viewer is already an active baseball player, and Smith emphasizes that the viewer should watch the lessons, try to implement them out on the diamond, and then watch the lessons again to pick up further pointers. The video is professionally done and well organized, and the humble style of Ozzie Smith, who occasionally cites instances where he had to work hard to refine some basic skills during his own long career, would make it attractive to young ballplayers who want to better their game. --Robert J. McNamara
