Why this book? Thanks to my soccer past, I chose to be a coach and give individual and group soccer lessons so, of course, I'm promoting my activity. But there are other reasons. For example, all books teach HOW to play soccer and they do it very well for all ages of players. Thousands of pages in which everything is sectioned in the most minute detail and, because no one knows everything, I also learn something new everyday. But what is really missing is what soccer IS for the rest of the world and why, even though 17 million Americans play soccer (12 million kids), it is not popular at the professional level like basketball, football and baseball. I tried to answer this question in an indirect way, by publishing this soccer novel, in which the protagonist, Marco, struggles everyday with this problem. Another reason that pushed me, is the fact that I think those who have played at the highest levels should transfer their experience to the new generation of players. I believe it is our obligation, otherwise our experience will be lost. I'm still coaching and teaching soccer. You can reach me at email@example.com or though my website CoachGianni.com.
Mastering the fundamental skills of hitting, throwing, and catching is only half the game of baseball; the other half is about strategy and working together as a team to make plays. This instructive book explains: how the pitcher and catchertogether called the batterytalk to each other through hand signals to strike out a batter; why players need to call out to other players to avoid collisions when making a catch; how several players working together can make that rare triple play!
This book is written to tell people that Little League Baseball is more than just a game. In my 36 years of being in Little League Baseball, I've seen just about everything. I've seen the way some coaches teach their players to win a game. As Little League coaches, umpires, and officials, we should always be building good relationships with the players, their families, and all other people who are involved. The important thing is to teach the players the values of sportsmanship, teamwork, and fair play.
