This book is serious must have for all baseball coaches in Hß or above. This book is not geared to the little league coach. But as an Assistant coach I found this book as helpful as anything. I was amazed how much this book helps and is so though. Great Book !!!!!

The ABCA has outdone itself in putting together this masterful work full of insight from present and future ABCA Hall of Famers. The book includes helpful tidbits on all aspects of the game for both high school and college coaches. A must read for all baseball coaches interested in building a successful baseball program

Imagine the chance to listen to advice from some of the most successful baseball coaches of all time. This is your chance.
This book is a compilation with each chapter written by a legendary baseball coach. I surmise the authors intended it to be meaningful advice for coaches aspiring to run a baseball operation, as the chapters cover things like coaching philosophy, recruiting, and promoting your program.
It's a virtual blueprint for coaches instructing from high school to college. But you'll learn something positive to apply immediately--even if you're a volunteer youth baseball coach. Xs and Os--but not on the field--behind the scenes. A chance to get inside the mind of some great baseball coaches; I enjoyed every page.

This was a surprising good book not only about baseball but also life. It starts off with baseball fundamentals that you would expect, then it goes into the college coaching perspective of team management and expectations. Building units of character that go beyond baseball. As the books goes on, you begin to catch the personalities of the contributing coaches. I found the book to be middle ground in terms of technicals, which in my opinion, made for a better read. I'm pretty sure I'll be giving this book another read.

Good luck

Very good book for someone who wasn't a "baseball guy" and was talked into coaching it.

My step-son has entered the most fateful plunge there is other than marriage, buying a first home, and helping a child learn how to ride a bicycle... coaching a team of little baseball pollywogs! This excellent book places the "holy book of potatoes and gravy" in to a new coach's hands, and teaches the human eyeballs how to interpret every method known to man about coaching tactics into the mind of little rascals, who early in life, think that a baseball is meant to "watch fly" directly over their little baseball hats! This book is a great edition for curing that super headache that follows a coach into the locker room!

This is a collection of articles by esteemed college coaches about various aspects of coaching baseball. With a few exceptions, these essays provide general statements of philosophy rather than specific practice plans. If you are looking for a guide for what to do when, this may not be the book for you; however, the approaches to the game and to handling players provided by these experienced and successful coaches, is inspiring and informative. I would say that overall this is more philosophical than practical.
