Coaching Youth Baseball the Ripken Way by Cal Ripken, Jr.
Book DescriptionCoaching young players, developing their skills and cultivating a love for the sport may be the most rewarding experience baseball can offer. Cal and Bill Ripken understand this like few others. From their father, Cal Sr., a legend in the Baltimore Orioles organization for 37 years, they learned to play the game the right way. Those lessons, paired with their combined 33 years of big league experience, helped develop the Ripken Way, a method of teaching the game through simple instruction, solid explanations, encouragement, and a positive atmosphere. In "Coaching Youth Baseball the Ripken Way", Cal and Bill share this approach to coaching and development. Whether you're teaching your children at home, managing the local travel team, or working with high school-level players, "Coaching Youth Baseball the Ripken Way" will help you make a difference both on and off the field. More than 50 drills covering defense, hitting, pitching and baserunning are featured and age-specific practice plans for players ranging from 4 to 15+. The book will benefit teams through strategies for setting goals and reasonable expectations for your players and team advice on communicating with parents, players and staff. Also a feature of the book are methods for creating a positive and fun environment in which kids can learn the skills and strategies of the game. Bill Ripken was once voted by his peers as one of the big league players most likely to become a manager. Cal Ripken, Jr., known as baseball's Iron Man, is a member of the game's All-Century Team and a future Hall of Famer. Together, they are proof that the Ripken Way is the right way to teach the game of baseball.
