Booklist Review

Gr. 5-9. Young players looking to improve their batting techniques will welcome the guidance provided by the discussion and drills in Garvey's text. He discusses bat selection, finding a comfortable grip, correct stance and weight transfer, focusing on the ball, and achieving an effective swing. Mental strategy in batting practice, specific game situations, adjusting to pitchers, and bunting are also included along with an examination of common batting problems and their symptoms and suggested drills to develop and maintain good form. The suggestions are sound and basic enough for young players to understand. To be illustrated with photographs. LC. 796.357'26 Batting (Baseball) [OCLC] 86-29286
