Synopsis: Hit it out of the park, with a coach's guidance! "This is just the book to help produce some future big-league hitters."--Kirkus Reviews. "Though a baseball swing takes only seconds, Brundage effectively stops the action and discusses a swing's component parts...points out common errors and describes drills to help develop good technique..."--Booklist. "Fabulous color photographs of girls and boys through current professional players, diagrams, and a solid text instruct budding athletes on the finer points of hitting a baseball."--School Library Journal.

Review: Everybody digs the long ball. If you're looking to become a top slugger on your Little League or school team, Be a Better Hitter has the tips to help you succeed. Coach Buz Brundage starts with the basics: a sound grip, a balanced stance, a pre-swing to help you "load the spring" (prime your muscles for action), and a powerful swing. Once you've developed a mechanically proper swing, Brundage leads you through turning and aiming your swing in the direction of the ball to help you hit for power. Other sections focus on when to--and when not to--pull a pitch, hitting for average, bunting, sacrifice flies, and remembering that the team comes first.

Invoking the legendary Yogi Berra ("Baseball is 90 percent mental"), Brundage also discusses mental preparedness: watching the pitcher, watching the umpire, and following the pitch count--whether you're ahead in the count or battling to protect the plate. Well illustrated, clearly written, and loaded with practice drills, Be a Better Hitter goes a long way toward helping you do just that. --M. Stein
