"Baseball writer Williams presents a how-to book, generously illustrated, that will serve both as a beautiful coffee-table work for fans interested in seeing gorgeous action shots of star players and as a definitive guide to skills acquisition and enhancement for players and coaches. From fundamentals to mechanics, drills to talent development, every element of the game is analyzed and illustrated. Youths and adults alike will enjoy the tips included from star MLB players. While there is nothing new in this text, the combination of superb photography with stellar commentary results in a fine book." Library Journal

"For those who want to play the game better, for those whom want to understand the game better, this is the book for you. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED." Dr. Harvey Frommer, Sportsology "When I received this book in the mail I was simply blown away. This is a gorgeous book full of spectacular glossy close-up photographs of major league baseball stars from the past and present. If you aren't interested in getting the best tips and advice possible from the world's greatest baseball stars, you definitely might be interested in displaying this on your coffee table - it's that nice... This book is the ultimate guide for either a child wishing to play the game or the adult looking to coach a baseball team. With Father's Day approaching, this just might be the perfect gift for the dad in your life who is a baseball fan or little league coach." BookDads "The MLB has compiled this definitive instruction manual on learning to play the game; fully illustrated with action photos of professional stars illustrating key points and drills for each defensive position." Publishers Weekly " This book is the ultimate guide for anyone that wishes to play or coach a baseball team. With chapters written by experts (people who have played the game themselves), the book is amazingly easy to read and understand and you can tell that anyone that reads this will gain a better understanding of the skills that you will need to succeed in the game itself... All-in-all, this is an amazing resource that I would recommend to anyone who is trying to play or coach baseball. You will not be disappointed!" Dad of Divas'
