Over a million kids participate in T-Ball every year. T-Ball Skills & Drills presents 37 creative drills that T-Ball coaches and parents can do with their team or with their own kids at home. Hitting, throwing, baserunning, and fielding fundamentals are just some of the skills covered.

The idea of keeping it simple and having young kids achieve success will not only help these 5 and 6 year olds have fun but will keep them coming back for more baseball. The creative drills are explained in detail accompanied by excellent color pictures. Drills like the "Recycle Bin Drill" and the "Bathroom Plunger Drill" have to be seen to be believed.
