This is an amazing book and DVD. My five year old son wants to play T- ball this spring and I have been looking for a quality teaching book. The material is wonderfully presented, with tons of color photos, and a step by step process for learning the game. Mongero covers every aspect of the game, the plays, hitting skills, throwing skills, base running, catching and fielding, but most of all I appreciate all the emphasis on keeping the practices engaging and fun. There is some great advice for parents and anybody who may want to coach, volunteer or just get involved. 

I was also impressed by the nearly 4 hours of DVD instruction included with the book. The video demonstrations are clear and follow links in the book. I'm amazed that the book and DVD was only 19.95!! My son and I will start with some with simple games and now he can hardly wait for the snow to melt and get out on the diamond!

THIS BOOK IS A GREAT TOOL FOR PARENTS, COACHES AND PLAYERS BECAUSE IT NOT ONLY BREAKS DOWN THE TECHNIQUES IN WRITTEN AND VISUAL FORM BUT IT ALSO TALKS ABOUT THE ABSTRACT ASPECTS OF BASEBALL AND LIFE. I PERSONALLY KNOW HOW MUCH "BLOOD SWEAT AND TEARS" WENT INTO THIS BOOK AND HOW MUCH THE AUTHOR CARES ABOUT HIS PLAYERS AS PEOPLE. HE HAS A UNIQUE GIFT IN THAT HE NOT ONLY KNOWS THE GAME OF BASEBALL INSIDE AND OUT BUT HE KNOWS HOW TO TEACH AND MOTIVATE SO THAT EACH PLAYER HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME THE BEST HE CAN BE. ANYONE THAT TAKES THE TIME TO READ THIS MANUAL AND IMPLEMENT THE TECHNIQUES AND PHILOSOPHIES WILL SEE POSITIVE RESULTS

I just got my copy of Coach's Companion: Winning Baseball. I never imagined that this book would be so comprehensive and "on the spot" with baseball instruction and drills for each age level. I have had three boys play through college and one play pro ball and this material would have been so useful years ago when my boys were young. Luckily it is out in time for me to help my grandson play machine pitch this spring. I love the DVD! 4 hours of baseball! This book has got to be the best value on the baseball market.

I got my copy of Coaches Companion: Winning baseball and I love it. AS a single mom I now know what to work on with my 9 year old boy. The DVD is tremendous. Hours and hours of teaching and baseball drills. Of the 5 books I have purchased, on baseball instruction, this one is hands down the best.

This review is from: Winning Baseball for Beginner to Intermediate Play (The Coach's Companion) (Paperback)

I have read many books to try and encourage and help my son with the game of baseball. This book has by far been the best one I have had the privledge to read. I am a novice, so the dvd's, pictures and easy to read style has proven so helpful to me. Finally, a book that I can pick up and easily maneuver my way around without the need for a translator!! It is written where I can not only pick up great fundamentals, but I can teach them to my son through dvd instruction that we can watch together and duplicate. Thank you for supplying this mom with a way to encourage and instruct her son on the fundamentals of a game he so dearly loves. It will be a gift for his coach, myself and many other mom's and dad's that have been searching for a tool, that they as parents can utilize to take their kids to the next level. Excellent!

This review is from: Winning Baseball for Beginner to Intermediate Play (The Coach's Companion) (Paperback)

I grew up around baseball my entire life and have never come accross a book such as this one. It is a must have for every parent who wants their child to learn the proper fundamentals of baseball so their child can excel and be the best player possible. It is also for every coach who wants to be the best coach possible and has his players best interests at heart. The instructional DVD is so professional and is a key tool to learing the fundamentals, it will provide hours of age specific instruction. Mr. Mongero (Coach Mongero) is to be commended for taking the time to give such a awesome "gift" to the world of baseball. My recommendation is BUY THIS BOOK, it is worth every penny and more. You will not be sorry and either will your child. It is a book you will be forever grateful you purchased, I know I am!

I was not expecting much when I bought this book. For the price I was thinking it would be very basic and just another baseball book. Boy was I wrong! This is the best baseball instructional book I have ever seen and the DVD is awesome! Great Job!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Baseball Must Have

This review is from: Winning Baseball for Beginner to Intermediate Play (The Coach's Companion) (Paperback)

My son and I are always on the look out for new insights into building baseball skills. In this book, we have found exactly what we were looking for. The ideas and concepts are well defined and easily understood. The problem with many instructional books is not the information but how it is presented. Coach Mongero clearly understands his audience. This book and the fantastic DVDs have become a great resource for both father and son. After games my soon often will go back to certain sections or videos and think about he might apply the information in his next practice or game. We continually learn from baseball resource.

This review is from: Winning Baseball for Beginner to Intermediate Play (The Coach's Companion) (Paperback)

As a former college baseball player and with a son now who I coach in little league, I must say that this book is by far the best educational tool in the marketplace. Trent's insight on the game and his ability to "simply" put all the necessary pieces in place to help develop the skills our kids need is remarkable. I would recommend this book to anybody that is serious about teaching baseball the "right" way!
