HASH(0x920401c8) out of 5 stars Times have changed 10 Jun. 2005
By therealjermo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Kids are playing baseball at a much higher skill level these days, and are playing less sandlot baseball like I did when I was a kid. As a result, Little League practices need to be more than just BP and infield practice for the players to develop to their full potential.

This book has drills that range from fundamentals, to more complex workouts for the entire team. There are some drills appropriate for kids as young as T-Ball (and I have used them with players as young as 5) - but all of the drills are good for players as old as High School/Big League age.

This book would be particularly useful for Coaches returing to the game. The developments in the study of body mechanics have changed the way that a lot of basic skills are taught now, and this book includes up-to-date drills to reflect these changes.

For example, batters are taught a much more compact and quick swing than I learned when I was a kid.

This book is a good investment for the beginning OR experienced coach, or the parent who wants to see their kids excel in baseball - America's National Passtime.

HASH(0x91c70144) out of 5 stars TONS of Good Drills 23 Jun. 2009
By JustMe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
All drills not for all ages, but you can definitely find many drills for any age group in this book, well worth the money I paid on Amazon. I've recently purchased several youth baseball coaching books and though I like the Ripken ones a bit more overall, I'm glad I got this one too. Not every strategy, drill or style is for everyone, it's good to get a wide range to choose from. There are TONS of drills in this book, good explanations, easy to run, if it's not exactly what you think would fit your team you can probably make small adjustments to make it work. I've coached youth baseball for 8 years, used books and websites for aids, still plenty of news ideas for me in this book.

HASH(0x91c6acd8) out of 5 stars Not so great for younger players 11 Nov. 2007
By Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this hoping for practice and drill ideas for my 7-year-old baseball nut son. While I'm sure it will be great in future years (high school), it has very little of use for younger players such as Little Leaguers. That's not a flaw with the book exactly, just a shortcoming of the marketing info at the time of sale.

HASH(0x91c7a0e4) out of 5 stars Great book with lots of good drills 14 Feb. 2016
By CA Dad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lots of very good drills. Many more than I expected. Very well written by many different coaches with various specialities. I have already incorporated several of these drills into my practices. I was looking for something for my 12YOs and this hit the mark. Other books are aimed a little younger player, but his book has the advanced drills to push these kids to the next level. I am not sure this would be good for very young kids (<9YO)

HASH(0x91c75744) out of 5 stars Great reference 15 May 2012
By Tundra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent book of drills -- if your practices are becoming boring, thumb through this book and find some new drills to keep things fresh. Coaching LL we had several copies -- one for each coach and could then plan practices much more quickly, e.g., the day before we could agree that we were going to start our next practice with, say, drill 32, 102, and 117. Coaches would review the drills beforehand and be prepared to run stations. Drills are easily applicable to Little League through Legion and probably beyond.
