Most of us who are, or plan to be, coaches played baseball in high school, possibly college, and have a good knowledge of the skills necessary to play the game. The Tool Kit  supplements your skills knowledge by providing tools to make you a more effective coach. Why reinvent the wheel when everything you need is available in the Tool Kit?

    I believe the most effective approach to coaching is to SHOW, EXPLAIN, DO.   Show your players what you are trying to teach, explain it to your players, then have your players practice it.   The Tool Kit provides you with almost 200 “Tools” to use for the SHOW part of the process. The “Tools” are explained in the book so you can TELL your players about it and then they can PRACTICE it.

The Tool Kit is the answer for all levels of coaches:

For coaches getting started the Tool Kit shows you how to start a team, provides forms to  get organized, instructions on how to determine what to teach in practice, how to organize your practices, sample practice plans, many stations, drills and contests to use in your practices, motivational material to challenge and develop your players, graphics and handouts to use as teaching aids and give to your players. The tools are on a CD, easy to modify and use. A twelve minute video illustrates how you can use the tools in a productive practice.

For experienced coaches the Tool Kit includes a three session clinic for Outfielders, six Speed and Agility tests, more drills and contests to enhance your practices, handouts such as Players Responsibilities, What Champions Do, the Making of a Champion and a Pre-Game plan for your players.

  For travel ball/competitive team coaches the Tool Kit includes over twenty tools especially for travel ball teams such as Team Trips, Chaperones, Team Lunch, Uniforms, pre and post season Player Assessments, a competitive team Coaching Philosophy, a Coach/Player Commitment form, a Liability Waiver, etc and over twenty pages which can be used to build a Team Handbook.

Here's what some other coaches who use the book have to say:

"The Baseball Tool Kit was a great addition to our league."

One of the best instructional and organizational texts I have seen.”

“the Baseball Tool Kit that you sent me has been a big help. It's amazing how much info is in that book on the CD. That thing should sell like hotcakes. I just wanted to thank you for doing that and with me coaching a 6-8 year old team now and then a Fall Ball team after that, I'll get a ton of use out of it.”

“Another great thing about your book is that it covers just about every level a coach could be involved with.”

"This book has all the practical stuff missing from so many guides. It tells and shows you not only the ‘what to’, but also the ‘how to’.”

“Your book is excellent. It covers every possible detail that makes us coaches look more organized.”

Covers
I recently read an excellent book which I recommend highly. It is Clemente, The Passion and Grace of Baseball’s Last Hero by David Maraniss. It’s a gripping book about one of baseball’s greatest players but more so about a wonderful human being.  For the average fan it’s a fine book …. for Pirate fans it’s a must read.

Sorry but the Tool Kit is no longer available.
