Coaching 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, with these features: -More than 50 drills covering defense, hitting, pitching, and baserunning -Age-specific practice plans for players ranging from 4 to 15+ -Strategies for setting goals and reasonable expectations for your players and team -Advice on communicating with parents, players, and staff -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 positive that the Ripken Way is the right way to teach the game of baseball.

Every year, thousands of people volunteer their time and experience to become youth coaches. Play Fair and Win not only teaches the basic drills needed to run a successful team, but also demonstrates to prospective coaches how they can form a winning team while remaining true to the principles that made baseball America's favorite pastime. Drawing on his experience in coaching baseball and soccer at various levels, author John Hourihan provides valuable advice in every chapter, on topics such as: Molding your team (from before tryouts through setting up your defense) Teaching the basics Putting your team in a position to win Dos and don'ts Unfortunately, most novice youth baseball coaches settle into what they thought was going on when they were ten years old-the games where everyone got gum in the beginning and ice cream at the end. Today, there is a lot more to baseball that is being left out. If you're a youth league coach, to many players you are the game. It is your job to love the game, teach the basics, and remember that the players aren't part of the equipment. Play Fair and Win will help you to develop a successful strategy and accomplish that goal.
