As a player, and now a Coach, I can't say enough about developing good habits and good fundamentals early. If care any bit about developing your childs skill level, or if you just need a jump start to your coaching skills this is a great place to start. This book will help you in every aspect, from infielders, outfielders, pitchers, and catchers. The drills that this book offers are helpful to any coach, and many could be used for girls softball as well. Definitly worth the read.....even if you think you know it all.
