Format: Paperback
This book is a great guide to an aggressive style offense. As a player I like to take the game to the opponent and make them work. Coach Delmonico shows the essentials to an aggressive offense. I plan on incorporating some of the ideas in this book into my own coaching style. Sitting back and waiting for the big inning can win some games, but aggressive offense can win more games. I recommend it highly to all coaches.

This book is full of ideas about how to make your baseball team an offensive success. I would recommend the book even though it is from the 1990's.

I haven't done many of the suggested drills, but simply as bedside reading this book does a fantastic job breaking down critical elements of the game. I've used many tips I learned from it, especially in baserunning, with success. In baseball you can think too little, and you can think too much; this book finds the right level.

With hundreds of new books monthly claiming to reinvent the bio-mechanical wheel, "Hit and Run Baseball" is still the model of intelligent and insightful thinking on developing a sophisticated approach to the game. His approach continues to work.
