Recognizing his passion and talent, Candace and her husband decided they would do whatever they could to help him develop his natural ability.

Format: Paperback
If you have a child who is or wants to be a baseball player, then this book is for you. Beautifully written by a devoted baseball Mom in an informative, understanding, supportive, loving way. Reading this book brought back fond and painful memories of my grown son when he was a little boy with a leather glove and big dreams to be special...and he is! I love this book, and give it as gifts to my friends with basball kids.

Accurate and informative for all levels of play. Great information for moms who are insiders and moms who are completely outside the park when it comes to baseball. Provides support for those of us who happen to be the necessary secret weapon for our baseball kids. Even has a "Baseball Lingo" dictionary of terms and definitions. Lots of resources for baseball families. Re-reading it again for the fourth time.

Invaluable information for the parents of daughters & sons in competitive sports, especially baseball. This book is clearly written from personal experience and reveals the human element, and not just the stats.

This book is not what I expected. I was looking for more of a basic guide to baseball and instead got a guide to raising a baseball son. While I was initially disappointed in the beginning, I read the book and actually ended up enjoying it. Still looking for the baseball guide tho!

Format: Paperback
This was an enjoyable read with a lot of very enlightening and useful information. I came away with great pointers on how I can encourage and support my baseball player. I also learned a lot about the game I didn't know. This book kept me engaged throughout; the writing style is easy to read. I found myself laughing, learning, and enjoying cover to cover. I would highly recomend this book for anyone with a baseball player in the family!
