A fun and interactive way for parents and players to record—and learn valuable lessons from—every swing

Whether you're a parent sitting in the stands at your children's games or a Little League player wielding the bat, you can't help but take note of hitting performance. You remember every home run and every strikeout. After the game, you can give a detailed play-by-play of every swing. But can you remember if the pitcher was right- or left-handed? What was the pitch count when the bat made contact? Were the pitches high, low, inside, or outside? This information and much more is critical to helping hitters understand why they had a good or bad game. And that's what makes this book unique.

Developed by a major league veteran and acclaimed instructor, this convenient, spiral-bound organizer provides plenty of room for recording every at-bat. And it's easy to do. A simple-to-follow system shows you how to:

  • Record pitches using scoring shorthand
  • Mark down the location of hits using simple field diagrams
  • Keep track of counts and at-bat results
  • Detect play patterns
  • Determine batting average with basic arithmetic
  • Analyze the results to create a progress report that will improve future swings

Filled with can't-miss tips, this personal scouting report helps young players discover their strengths and weaknesses—and become better batters. Even more, sitting down as a family after the game to review the plays means quality time at home, making this journal a special memento of your child's Little League days.
