  • An inside look at Little League softball

Review:

Late on the night of his youngest son's final Little League game, Ned McIntosh found he couldn't sleep. He realized that he'd never again coach one of his children, and he began wondering whether his coaching system, developed over 15 years of coaching (and three sons), would be of use to other parent/coaches. Three years later, Managing Little League Baseball was born. From start to finish, McIntosh stresses the need to make baseball fun for the players, all the while developing the skills players need to win. From choosing players (use your returning players as scouts) to making sure they all play (a Little League rule) to designing effective practices, McIntosh outlines the techniques that have made his teams successful--for 15 straight winning seasons. Chapters outline drills for hitting, base running, defense, and pitching, while a special section focuses on handling overbearing parents. This otherwise fine book is flawed by too few illustrations (a problem remedied by McIntosh's later book, Little League Drills and Strategies), but Managing Little League Baseball is a great resource for coaches old and new. --Sunny Delaney
