This book was written expressly for you who are coaching children in basetball. We stress how to teach children this complex game and to have fun doing it. The book covers all facets of the game from the most basic "how to" throw, catch, run and bat to game strategies and tactics. When coaching children it should be a fun experience for everyone, for you, for the parents, and most important of all, for the children. As a coach, we cover the teaching attitude and methods. We always keep in mind that these are children, and the game is for the kids and not for the adults. Winning isn't everything, but learning to play well and wanting to win is. We have taken the children from first grade through the eighth grade and bro-ken them into four categories. In each category we discuss the players needs and abilities, what they are capable of in both the physical and emotion sense, and their limitations. We have also defined the coach's role, the parent's role and the player's role.

Rod Humphries, sports journalist, television writer, and former administrator of a worldwide professional tennis tour, shares his personal experiences and advice from experts in this complete insider’s guide designed to help players, their parents, and baseball fans understand how Major Leaguers “pay their dues.” Humphries, who closely studied the entire baseball assembly line when his son was drafted out of high school by the Houston Astros, offers valuable information on: • The professional baseball structure • Little League vs. select/travel ball • Player analysis and recruitment • Scholarships and coaching camps • Draft day decisions, salaries, and career chances Little League to the Major Leagues provides proven tips and time-tested advice for any family or player who dares to dream of journeying beyond youth baseball to high school, college, and the professional game.
