Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“[A] great book on hitting. I think it is a must read for every dad and (baseball) coach."  —Mike Scioscia, manager, Los Angeles Angels, from the foreword

“Here is what Perconte does best. Most of all, he breaks the swing down into words that can be understood . . . Speaking from experience, this book is a grand slam."  —Kevin Kernan, New York Post

"Whether you play tee ball or master’s league softball, whether you’re a coach or a parent, if the goal is hitting a ball with a bat, there’s a gold mine of information."  —David Oberhelman, Chicago Daily Herald

"It's great for parents, coaches and players. This author has analyzed how to hit, studied how to convey the results of that analysis, and succeeded in passing it on to readers. His book is out of the park."  —Inland Northwest Exchange
