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.
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.
