The holidays are coming! Are your volunteer coaches on your gift list? The best coach-appreciation gift (and best training tool to boot) is a CoachDeck. Why not join the thousands of leagues nationwide that are handing these out in their coaches meetings.
In this issue: Mike Epstein's final in a three-part series addresses how pitchers try to get hitters off balance, and what hitters can do to react. Brian Gotta provides tips for how youth coaches can provide feedback to players when they make mistakes. And Dr. Darrell Burnett returns with a letter that should be mandatory reading for all sports parents.
