This book is great for a Baseball coach, from Little League all the way through high school.

Excellent book of drills -- if your practices are becoming boring, thumb through this book and find some new drills to keep things fresh.

Anyway... great book for coaches looking for some new drills to run with their players at different skill levels.

Format: Paperback
Kids are playing baseball at a much higher skill level these days, and are playing less sandlot baseball like I did when I was a kid. As a result, Little League practices need to be more than just BP and infield practice for the players to develop to their full potential.

This book has drills that range from fundamentals, to more complex workouts for the entire team. There are some drills appropriate for kids as young as T-Ball (and I have used them with players as young as 5) - but all of the drills are good for players as old as High School/Big League age.

This book would be particularly useful for Coaches returing to the game. The developments in the study of body mechanics have changed the way that a lot of basic skills are taught now, and this book includes up-to-date drills to reflect these changes.

For example, batters are taught a much more compact and quick swing than I learned when I was a kid.

This book is a good investment for the beginning OR experienced coach, or the parent who wants to see their kids excel in baseball - America's National Passtime.

All drills not for all ages, but you can definitely find many drills for any age group in this book, well worth the money I paid on Amazon. I've recently purchased several youth baseball coaching books and though I like the Ripken ones a bit more overall, I'm glad I got this one too. Not every strategy, drill or style is for everyone, it's good to get a wide range to choose from. There are TONS of drills in this book, good explanations, easy to run, if it's not exactly what you think would fit your team you can probably make small adjustments to make it work. I've coached youth baseball for 8 years, used books and websites for aids, still plenty of news ideas for me in this book.

I bought this hoping for practice and drill ideas for my 7-year-old baseball nut son. While I'm sure it will be great in future years (high school), it has very little of use for younger players such as Little Leaguers. That's not a flaw with the book exactly, just a shortcoming of the marketing info at the time of sale.

This book is great for a Baseball coach, from Little League all the way through high school. Not only does it give a number of drills for each area (e.g. warmups, throwing, pitching, catching, batting, defensive situations), but it provides many illustrations to show how the drills should be run, and provided details on the how and why.

I have recommended this book to a number of other coaches and each has really appreciated it.

Format: Paperback
This is a great tool for coaches looking to add variety to their practices. This book has helpful illustrations to facilitate each drill. Also the nice thing about this book is the detailed explanation of what each drill is looking to achieve, and gives variations of most drills to make them more challenging.

I coach HS Freshman baseball and use many of these drills to teach the foundation of the high school game. I would recommend this book to coaches of all levels.

Excellent book of drills -- if your practices are becoming boring, thumb through this book and find some new drills to keep things fresh. Coaching LL we had several copies -- one for each coach and could then plan practices much more quickly, e.g., the day before we could agree that we were going to start our next practice with, say, drill 32, 102, and 117. Coaches would review the drills beforehand and be prepared to run stations. Drills are easily applicable to Little League through Legion and probably beyond.

Easy to use drill book especially for the coach who needs foundation drill building skills. I enjoyed the book I like a few others more but this one helped at a time I needed it

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Any manager or coach can find useful drills from this book. This book is not a teaching guide however. There are certain assumptions in the basics of teaching baseball skills. The value in this book is being able to vary your practice plan to keep the players motivated. The way the book is set up easily allows you to find drills that can help improve weak skills.
