Overview

Coaching Baseball Technical and Tactical Skills / Edition 1

Numerous coaching books cover the bases on the skills and drills of baseball. But very few hit on the tactical skills of the game: the situational decisions players and coaches make that often determine the outcome of games. That's where Coaching Baseball Technical and Tactical Skills stands out in the lineup of baseball titles available today.

Written by the American Sport Education Program (ASEP) in conjunction with Tom O'Connell, a 30-year veteran coach and 2004 American Baseball Coaches Association Coach of the Year, Coaching Baseball Technical and Tactical Skills prepares you to be a better teacher and tactician of the game. Technical skills—such as hitting, throwing, and fielding—are examined in depth, as well as the tactical skills—such as hit-and-run, double-steal, and double-play defenses—that so many other books pitch around.

Nearly 180 photos and illustrations bring the basic to intermediate technical skills to life, while sample season and practice plans help you in your preparation. With Coaching Baseball Technical and Tactical Skills, you have a resource you can rely on to take you down the base paths to coaching success.

Endorsed by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA), the book serves as a companion resource for the Coaching Baseball Technical and Tactical Skills online course, which, along with Coaching Principles, Sport First Aid, and CPR certification, make up the curriculum for ASEP's Bronze Level coaching certification program.
