An economical solution to expensive training camps and private instruction, The Little League® Guide to Conditioning and Training shows parents and coaches how to keep players in great form all season long. Based on the author's extensive experience researching, coaching, and interacting with parents, players, and other coaches, this defining book discusses the most pertinent topics specific to Little League coaches and players, including: How much should a pitcher throw during warm-ups? When is the right time to bunt? How do you talk to a batter who is afraid of the ball? Should the best pitchers be taught to throw a curveball? With more than 100 photographs to illustrate stretches, exercises, and drills, The Little League® Guide to Conditioning and Training is divided into four accessible sections: *Preseason Conditioning: Presents a detailed two-week program that prepares players for tryouts and the opening day. *Game Day Routine: Examines pregame rituals and how to best prepare a team to be ready for the first pitch. *In-Season Maintenance: Teaches you how to evaluate strengths and weaknesses in players during the season and how to iron out the wrinkles during practice. *Keeping It Safe: Focuses on safety on the baseball field, including basic emergency procedures for injury and illness and simple tips to avoid the most frequently occurring injuries.
