Swing as hard as you can in case you hit it.

This book is intended to get youth players and parents started in the right direction. It is a basic guide for parents and coaches, a road map as kids go through their life cycle of a youth baseball career.

Every youth player is different – from size to strength to mental development – and this book is designed to teach, answer and raise questions, and to help you navigate a young athlete’s career.

This 82 page book encompasses what Larry Hoskin learned from running "Bucky Dent Baseball School" for 37 years, and from giving clinics to thousands of students, parents and coaches world wide over the last 40 years.  

 

Larry’s gift is teaching kids how to be better in all things – better players, better athletes, better people. His knowledge and experience teaching young people is unique in its depth and tenure.
-- Chris Scott, parent and CEO of C Scott Consulting

Not only is this book a great asset to youth players, high school and college athletes. It is also an educational tool for parents, so they know what to expect in the future.
-- Miguel Cuello, high school baseball coach/two-time state champion

A must-read: Larry presents an overview of the responsibilities of players, what is expected from coaches and the role of parents. These basics are the building blocks for success in every sport.
-- Michael Demchak, parent

This book clearly answers all the questions that high school baseball players and their families have about the various decisions they must make as they progress in the game.
-- Kyle Forbes, head coach of Palm Beach State College

This book has great information that can help fathers, coaches and players. Good stuff!
-- Jeff Conine, former MLB star
