It's just like the pros: bright lights, screaming fans, squawking commentators and five million people watching you play your heart out on national television for the right to be called champions. But these are not pampered multimillion-dollar athletes; they are 11- to 13-year-old kids. The 2005 World Series was the most dramatic in the 58-year history of the Little League. With full access to the players, coaches and parents associated with both teams who played in that game, Charles Euchner delivers an astonishing and dramatic narrative that delves into every aspect of the little league game. "Even those with only a passing interest in baseball will be intrigued by this fascinating look at Little League, 'the largest amateur sports organization in the world.'" -Publishers Weekly "Readers can expect to learn a great deal about the history of Little League and the stories behind many teams.

This book was written expressly for you who are coaching children in basetball. We stress how to teach children this complex game and to have fun doing it. The book covers all facets of the game from the most basic "how to" throw, catch, run and bat to game strategies and tactics. When coaching children it should be a fun experience for everyone, for you, for the parents, and most important of all, for the children. As a coach, we cover the teaching attitude and methods. We always keep in mind that these are children, and the game is for the kids and not for the adults. Winning isn't everything, but learning to play well and wanting to win is. We have taken the children from first grade through the eighth grade and bro-ken them into four categories. In each category we discuss the players needs and abilities, what they are capable of in both the physical and emotion sense, and their limitations. We have also defined the coach's role, the parent's role and the player's role.
