How to Play Baseball: The Parent's Role in Their Child's Journey is like a toolbox full of valuable information for parents, coaches or anyone who is in a position of responsibility for young athletes. The lessons, anecdotes and techniques that are a part of every chapter are drawn from the extensive experience of the author, Chuck Schumacher. It is a balanced mixture of martial arts philosophy and the heart and soul of our national pastime. Baseball is something all Americans have grown up with but few understand the intricacies' that go with playing the game, especially at a high level. This book points out the need for parents and coaches to play their role in a responsible way, respecting the difficulty of the game and the truth of proper training: that developing skill takes time, especially for young, inexperienced players. Practical advice and techniques are offered throughout the book and the reader can go to the chapter that may address a particular need; chapters such as Effort, Staying positive or Master the Basics before Attempting the Advanced. In these chapters and others, they will garner a wealth of useful and practical information that will help them play their role in a way that is helpful to kids. Examples of incorrect behavior and thinking by adults that actually hinder a child's progress instead of helping, are presented throughout the book. Consequences to kids are discussed and solutions are offered. Examples of adults correctly playing their role and the rewards that come with this positive behavior are also pointed out. The life lessons that are available through baseball and other sports are relative to every chapter. In the chapter Attitude, adults are encouraged to be the ones who help kids understand how their actions, good, bad, or indifferent, will directly affect not only their playing time on the team, but eventually other areas of their life. In another chapter entitled Patience, we learn that patience is the ability to be at peace with a situation as it develops. Not living in the past, not living in the future, but living in the present moment. There is a separate chapter for volunteer coaches with advice on coaching kids, including wearing the right hat: the youth coaching hat, not the major league baseball hat.

This volume reviews the history of LOVE among humans since they evolved from primates.

It is a fine-grained tale of the realities of life with a child who has autism, a challenging and puzzling disorder, but who is still his unique, loveable self." - Dr. Elizabeth Seagull, Pediatric Psychologist, Professor Emeritus Michigan State University.

This breathtaking debut novel examines the impact of traumatic childhood experiences and the fragile line between past and present. Exquisitely nuanced and profoundly intimate, The Night Child is a story of resilience, hope, and the capacity of the mind, body, and spirit to save itself despite all odds. Nora Brown teaches high school English and lives a quiet life in Seattle with her husband and six-year-old daughter. But one November day, moments after dismissing her class, a girl’s face appears above the students’ desks—“a wild numinous face with startling blue eyes, a face floating on top of shapeless drapes of purples and blues where arms and legs should have been. Terror rushes through Nora’s body—the kind of raw terror you feel when there’s no way out, when every cell in your body, your entire body, is on fire—when you think you might die.” Twenty-four hours later, while on Thanksgiving vacation, the face appears again. Shaken and unsteady, Nora meets with neurologists and eventually, a psychiatrist. As the story progresses, a terrible secret is discovered—a secret that pushes Nora toward an even deeper psychological breakdown. “Anna Quinn writes with bright and assured authority, making this a remarkable debut novel you won’t soon forget. Her haunting story, expertly and lovingly crafted, leaves you breathless with both terror and hope.”—Susan Wiggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author

I was inspired to write this book to help others avoid mistakes and improve their overall experiences. Through more than twenty-five years of playing, parenting, and coaching youth baseball, I have experienced a lot. With those experiences came joy, happiness, frustrations, heartache, and, best of all, memories. By sharing those experiences and the information I have obtained, I hope to help others create their own positive memories. The Triple Crown is an award given to a Major League Baseball player who leads his respective league in the three main offensive categories: batting average, home runs, and runs batted in (RBIs). This award is prestigious because it has only been accomplished seventeen times in Major League history, most recently in 2012, by Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers. Cabrera was the first to win the Triple Crown since 1967, when Carl Yastrzemski accomplished the feat. The reason I chose this title for my book was that, to me, the award and youth baseball are oddly similar. Like the Triple Crown award, I believe that there are three main components to youth baseball: players, parents, and coaches. When all three pieces come together and support one another you truly have something special. Almost every situation, player, parent, and coach is different, but the importance of the cohesiveness within the youth baseball's Triple Crown and its effect on athletic success is universal. Triple Crown will take you back through some of my most memorable baseball experiences, both good and bad. It will give players of all ages measurable goals, and strategies for attaining them, to ensure they are maximizing their potential. It will also suggest specific ways to improve all aspects of their game. Triple Crown is a guide to help parents navigate the journey and challenges their child may face as a player, from tee-ball to high school and beyond. I hope this book will give aspiring parents the tools to become a coach or an assistant at any level. It will also explain how to make baseball a rewarding and positive experience for your children even if you choose to be, as many of us are, their number-one fans. Triple Crown is a user's guide for beginning, intermediate, and even "seasoned veteran" coaches. It provides insight into what I learned, how I failed, and my growth through the years with my two sons playing Little League, Babe Ruth baseball, travel ball, all-stars, and high school baseball.

It's just like the pros: bright lights, screaming fans, squawking commentators and five million people watching you play your heart out on national television for the right to be called champions. But these are not pampered multimillion-dollar athletes; they are 11- to 13-year-old kids. The 2005 World Series was the most dramatic in the 58-year history of the Little League. With full access to the players, coaches and parents associated with both teams who played in that game, Charles Euchner delivers an astonishing and dramatic narrative that delves into every aspect of the little league game. "Even those with only a passing interest in baseball will be intrigued by this fascinating look at Little League, 'the largest amateur sports organization in the world.'" -Publishers Weekly "Readers can expect to learn a great deal about the history of Little League and the stories behind many teams. This well-written book will inform and entertain." -Library Journal
