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.
