Editors Note So you thought you were just going to drop him off at practice? This is the third of Ragged Mountain Press's Baffled Parent's Series (with Coaching Youth Basketball and Coaching Youth Soccer). Coaching Youth Baseball is written for the unprepared parent who is unwittingly thrust into the role of coaching his or her 8- to 12-year-old child's baseball team. It provides the fundamentals a new coach needs to control, motivate, and encourage a disparate group of boys and girls varying skills and dispositions. It address both broad organizational issues (How do I get uniforms or arrange for practice time?) and more focused specifics (What do I do at the first practice? How do I determine a child's position? What drills are best to teach basic skills like catching, throwing, and hitting? What about safety concerns?). The text allows a coach to match drills to his or her players' skills and motivations--and focuses on teaching kids
