Baseball Fundamentals and Fine Points

"This is as well-crafted an introduction to baseball fundamentals as one is likely to find in print. An excellent primer on the basics of our great American pastime". - KIRKUS REVIEWSby Larry Gabe
with Ed Nielsen

Little Things Win Big Games is a unique, one of a kind book. It is the only baseball book that discusses all of the baseball fundamentals by position and by skill set, including pictures (145) that illustrate the many points discussed. The book will be instructive to coaches at all levels, players (10+ years of age to major League Level) who are interested in improving their teams or individual performance. You will learn how to play baseball the "RIGHT WAY". Many of these fundamentals are no longer taught by today's volunteer coaches. This is impacting the level of knowledge of our players moving up to high school or as they enter college or professional levels.

PLAYING MENTALLY ALERT gives you the competitive edge. You will capitalize on your opponents mistakes and weakness, not making the mental errors for your team. The team that performs the fundamentals (the little things) best will win the game. You don't give extra outs to your opponent. Watch your opponents during warm up, note the strong arms, weak arms, quickness/slowness, note the opportunities for your team. However, to play mentally alert you must fully understand the game and rules of baseball. Little Things Win Big Games will prepare you to play 100% mentally alert.
