Baseball is a simple enough game. Yet, mastering the skills requisite to play the game at a competitive level, regardless of one's age, often isn't easy. Knack Coaching Youth Baseball applies the unique Knack format-short passages of text linked to instructive photography of both boys and girls playing the sport, all organized into spread-based lessons-to present basic and advanced information about coaching this popular youth sport for kids aged five to fourteen. The author, a sportswriter who coaches his son's little league team, focuses on techniques that will help any team win while reminding coaches that children should have fun above all else.
