Expertly edited and organized by Charlie Greene (now retired but formerly the baseball coach for Miami-Dade Community College with a career record of 1,047-548 and a member of the American Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame), "Gold Glove Baseball" is an illustrated instruction guide for aspiring ball players with an emphasis on position skills, team tactics, practice drills, and signals. In addition to Charlie Greene, the contributors include an all-star line up of college and university baseball coaches: Bob Bennet (1,302-759-4); Ed Flaherty (594-2550-3); Davey Johnson (hired as a consultant to the team general manager of the Washington nations in June 2006); Ken Knutson (461-295-2); Carroll Land (Director of Athletics at Point Loma Nazarene University); Mike Maack (Head Coach of the new Plano Blue Sox); Rich Maloney (Head Baseball Coach at the University of Michigan); Jim Penders (Head Baseball Coach for the University of Connecticut); Sam Piraro (the winningest baseball coach in the history of San Jose State University); Steve Smith (Head Coach of Baylor University's baseball program); Scott Stricklin (Head Baseball Coach at Kent State University); and Jerry Weinstein (831-208-12). A thoroughly 'user friendly' manual, "Gold Glove Baseball" will prove to be an invaluable reference for college and university athletic department reference collections. Also very highly recommended are two other titles from Human Kinetics: Vern & Gambet's "Athletic Development" (9780736051002, $19.95) and Curran's "Coaching Baseball Successfully" (9780736065207, $19.95).

This is the book to help you improve you or the team you are coaching. It covers all the important topics and explains why you need to know them.

Like I have said before, if you are looking for a book to teach players about the game look no further than a title written by the the ABCA

This book has much more detailed information than some especially for older athletes. Detailed information on every aspect of the game.
