Coach. You just volunteered to coach your child's tee ball team, and now you realize you're not sure how tee ball differs from baseball, or how to help these 4- to 8-year-olds on the road to improvement while also ensuring that they feel safe and have fun. Don't despair--Coaching Tee Ball is here to help.
Coaching Tee Ball gives you the basic rules and procedures of the game, sample practices, and advice and tips from experienced tee ball coaches and organizers (and parents). Also included are activities that introduce basic hitting, throwing, running, and fielding skills in an atmosphere that emphasizes fun and participation. Along the way, you'll learn a thing or two about coaching style and how to make improvement--rather than winning or losing--the goal of your season.

And we were most definitely "Baffled Parents". Especially me. I love baseball but this was a whole new ballpark to me. These kids were young and I had no idea where to start. I downloaded this book about a week before our first practice and by Practice Day, I was definitely tons more confident.
Awesome! We completely recommend this book to anyone who finds themselves as coaches.
