A comprehensive guide to baseball fundamentals that helps players and coaches build winning teams together
Watching major-league baseball today, many fans wonder what happened to the fundamentals of the game when they see a highly paid outfielder miss the cutoff man or a multimillion-dollar pitcher fail to lay down a bunt. What's missing are the basics--and that's precisely the content of this classic bestseller.
Updated and revised to address today's baseball rules and trends, Basic Baseball Strategy helps you, whether you're a beginning coach, a player from a youth or advanced league to master the fundamentals of the game--from the hit-and-run to the squeeze play, from when to steal to when to sacrifice. Former collegiate coach S. H. "Chuck" Freeman explains not only how to execute baseball's most basic plays but also why and when to do so.
