Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book covers all the bases for kid coaches...the writing is loose, the topics interesting...the information abundantly resourceful." -- Chicago Parent Magazine

About the Author

David A. Ham has been involved with baseball for more than 37 years — first as a youth player, then as a high school and college player, then as a youth coach for his son’s teams. His knowledgeable command of the sport and his genuine love of the game help bring to life the comments of the hometown hero coaches interviewed for this book. Janice Sibley’s 20+ years of professional expertise as a developer and writer of instructional materials, along with her firsthand experience as a baseball parent, join to create a well-structured, personality-rich, and easy-to-use ""road map"" for coaches everywhere.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By P. Plante on July 1, 2004
At my youth baseball team's end of season party, Janice Sibley, whose son Chris was on my team, presented me with a copy of this fine book. I was quite surprised that one of the parents on my team was the co-author of a book on coaching! I was glad she waited until the season was over to let me know, because it would have made me nervous.The first part of the book is about the power of positive coaching. As a youth baseball coach myself, I know that games can sometimes get tense and that negative words and actions from coaches and parents can and do slip out. None of us is perfect, but in the end kids (and adults) respond much better to positive re-enforcement than to negative. The book relies on the experiences of many successful "hometown hero" coaches from across the country, who tell us how they keep the game fun, positive, and low-stress for the kids, the parents, and themselves. The second part of the book contains the favorite drills of the many "hometown hero" coaches. It is not a comprehensive set of drills, just a collection of some standard and some unique drills that you may want to add to your coaching repertoire. I especially liked the one about "water balloon hitting"; it may not teach your kids how to hit, but it will be the drill they (and you) have the most fun with!The last part of the book relates some memorable personal moments from the "hometown hero" coaches. If you're a coach, these stories will touch you because, ultimately, the reward of coaching is in knowing that you have touched the life of a child in some small but positive way.

I expected more specific info but all and all it was a good book for first time coaches or dads for youth baseball.
