This book is chock full of bad advice. In it the author tells you to:

-teach a child to take a stance with a flat bat position (as shown on the cover)
-have the child "squish the bug" with the back leg (perform a reverse pivot)
-teach the child to chop down on an old tire to encourage a steeply downward swing plane (oh GAWD!)

In between giving bad hitting advice, he mocks "Daddy Ball" coaches and the methods they use to teach children while constantly reminding the reader that his is an expert "because he played pro ball".

Please don't do any of this to your child, buy Charlie Lau Jr.'s book, buy the Ripken brothers' book, watch random youtube videos on how to teach youth hitting--do anything but use the techniques taught in this book.

I have to say, I purchased this book with only a bit of hope that it could actually help....not only did it help, but it taught me all the things that I WAS DOING WRONG!! I was sure that hitting a baseball was easy, but when my rather athletic child really struggled with hitting I felt helpless. This book makes it so clear what you really have to focus on to hit the ball, and hit it well. It has been amazing what we've accomplished with a little time together in our backyard. This book has been worth every penny....and seeing your kid hit a ball and then grin with pride is priceless.

This book is an easy read. The concepts are easy to understand, the learning curve minimal. I agree with the author regarding becoming better by repetitive motion to encourage muscle memory. However, convincing my son to do something different was a huge challenge. Setting up to the plate was easy. Changing the grip was impossible. I was told that my son's hands may be too small for a "fingers" grip.
I now have a better understanding about how to hit a baseball, now I just have to teach it to my son. I'll give it another try later in the season.

Thanks so much to Coach Conway for writing this how-to book. I'm a beginner Penguin (you'll get it when you read the book) and needed to know how to teach my kids how to hit a baseball. Without this book, I would have been lost. I really know little about the game. But with the book, its easy to read chapters, its progression of techniques and - for me - its great, clear photos, Coach Conway really made it simple. In 9 days, my boys are going to CRUSH IT!!

Loved reading this book and already started working with both my 11yr old that plays travel ball, and my 9 yr old that plays rec ball. There is a warning in the book, 3rd page in, that hitting the baseball is a "dangerous activity".... and following this system, YES, it will be for the fielder getting in the way !!!!!

Nice job Coach Scott. I look forward to seeing a follow up.

I have always said that if you don't have the foundation, you can practice forever and see only a slight improvement.

In Scott Conway's book, How to hit a Baseball, he beautifully shows how to develop this foundation. His method of learning is well laid out and very effective and like he says, "10 minutes a day" is all it takes.

This book and Scott's system has helped my son to be a better hitter.
The program is easy to do, even for busy parents and it's so worth the
time to see him happy and confident at the plate. This book WILL help
your son or daughter be a crusher. Great system, thanks Coach Scott!

This nicely written guide to hitting a baseball gives you steps to set up your young hitter. Following the steps and then then doing some simple drills to help establish the basics is easy for a child to understand even if coming from a not great player parent.
