Face it: Your Little Leaguers didn't sign up for your team to work on their pitching, work on their batting, or work on their base-running. They joined the team to play and have fun with their friends. But finding ways to keep your team enthusiastic and motivated doesn't have to supersede crucial skill development.

Face it: Your Little Leaguers didn't sign up for your team to work on their pitching, work on their batting, or work on their base-running.

Making Little League‚ Baseball More Fun for Kids gives both coaches and parents a way to provide skill work in the guise of games that will keep kids happy and attentive throughout their practice.

Many can be played at home, while others are designed to involve the entire team. Each game is fun and simple to coordinate, and all of them teach or refine essential baseball skills so kids will enjoy their practice time while improving their technique.



Each game features:



• A brief message or anecdote that relates to the skill being learned

• Information about the number of players required, necessary equipment, a detailed explanation of how to play the game, and more

• An explanation of the specific skills that will be improved

• Sidebars that enlighten and entertain
