2.0 out of 5 stars The positions that are included are nicely done with little flash, 30 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not enough different poses, in particular no fielders in the ready position.

The positions that are included are nicely done with little flash, but there just aren't enough different / suitable ones to make a convincing diorama or represent a team in the field.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice song, shame about the video, 21 Jan 2014
This review is from: Pogue Vision [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
The songs are good, the videos are pretty cringeworthy, though in some cases they are so bad they are quite entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good but not perfact, 5 Mar 2011
This book is a great read for the enthusiastic softball player and would be particularly good for someone who has just become a team captain or is thinking of running a team. It covers a wide range of topics, and I particularly enjoyed the pitching information. Slow pitch pitching tends to be overlooked in more general guides so it's nice to see a few different pitches being demonstrated.

A couple of caveats:

1) The DVD is Region 1 which wasn't a problem for me but might come as a nasty surprise to others. Also despits being in a sealed case it wouldn't play at all until I'd cleaned it.

2) The book advises the batter to stand at the front of the batters box. I assume this is because the writers play in a league where they use a strike mat and the plate is part of the strike zone. Do that in this country and good pitchers will kill you by throwing high deep strikes that you won't be able to hit. Don't do it !


Bronx Batting Tee In Heavy Duty Rubber
Bronx Batting Tee In Heavy Duty Rubber
Offered by Sports Innovation Ltd
Price: £24.95

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality tee, 5 Mar 2011
As soon as you look at the photo of this tee one major fault becomes apparent, the base is too small, which means it falls over more often than a better tee would. I wasn't worried about that because I had a spare base lying around but having purchased one I've also found that the rubber isn't exactly heavy duty either and the top has ripped after only 3 weeks. All tees go eventually but for it to rip so quickly is not good.


The Istanbul Variations
The Istanbul Variations
by Olen Steinhauer
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Incredible, 28 Jun 2010
Reads quite well for the most part. Unfortunately the plot is just too fantastic to be credible (it's hard to say more without spoiling it) and the swapping between first and third person narrative is irritating.

Dvd ~ Marty Schupak

4.0 out of 5 stars Full of good ideas, 1 May 2010
Lots of good drills and practice ideas and drills for junior baseball. 90% of it is also applicable to my main interest, coaching rookie adult (or junior) softball players.
