I've bought quite a few baseball books the past four years. My 9 year old son picked this one out himself. This author logically dispels many myths, i.e., "Tight grip on the bat!" (no, tight grip on the bat equals tight muscles all over - not a good thing) "Level Swing!" (no, the ball is delivered by the pitcher well above the pitcher's head and the ball is aimed down toward the catcher's mitt, so it is more efficient for the batter to have a slight up-swing). The chapter on bunting (such a lost art) is the best I've ever read. There are some very excellent drills in this book - our favorite is taking batting practice while sitting in a chair (this is geared toward working on wrists and arm movement during batter's swing). This is a VERY fun book that parents can enjoy with their young ball player. My son has improved 100% since taking lessons from this book. This book is a homerun!!!

Outstanding! For young to old.

This book is replete with outstanding basics for the young hitter. Constant reassurance and positive phrases abound throughout the book. Drills accent the most basic of fundamentals and progress into the necessary skills needed for the high school player to be successful. Fantastic photographs of Ken Griffey, Jr. and Alex Rodriguez emphasize the key points of instruction. Simply put, this baseball instructional book is in a class above most.
