Funbe T-Ball: Introducing Your Child to Baseballby John Tuozzo

Have you noticed that youth sports just don't seem to be much fun anymore? In fact, if you've watched the news lately, they can be downright depressing-coaches going ballistic, parents fighting with each other, fans chanting obscenities, and our kids caught in the middle of the madness.
We wanted to put the fun back into youth sports, and that's why we created a company called Funbe Sports (http://www.FUNBESports.com). FUNBE T-Ball is the first of several instructional manuals in the works, each geared toward a different level of youth baseball. The goal of the books and the companion products we plan to offer is very simple-teach kids the fundamentals of baseball in a positive environment that allows the kids to have fun while learning the game of baseball.
We remembered how it was when we were a kid and we've noticed that today, the innocence and exuberance of the game seems to be lost. We think those things are worth finding again, and we have a feeling many of you do, too.
So we offer this book as an antidote to the craziness-to the "win-at-any-cost" mentality. We hope you find it useful, and we hope the children you teach acquire valuable baseball skills along with a love of our national pastime.
We also hope that when it comes time to ask that all-important question, "Are we having fun yet?," the answer from those future generations of aspiring young athletes in your charge will be a resounding "yes!"

This is a great book for coaches and parents who want to teach kids the right way to play baseball. The book is great for people who are new to the game of baseball as well as people who are seasoned veterans. I thought the number of illustrations really helped in understanding what the authors were explaining. I really enjoyed the parent's corner at the end of the book. All parents that have kids involved in any sports should read that chapter.
