by Kurt Aschermann and Gerard P.O’Shea

Neither Aschermann (a high school phys ed teacher) nor O’Shea (a communications teacher) has played major league baseball. But their book offers coaches and parents a lot of common sense advice and a sound sense of priorities to pass on to their young players. What children should be playing for, they argue, is fun, learning, growing and winning, in that order. It’s something to think about for every Little League coach contemplating a Billy Martinish tantrum. (Fireside, $6.95)
