About the Book

“How to Field a Ground Ball” is a microscopic, detailed explanation of a unique teaching method, one that demands instructive individuality, not group conformity. It is a method whose main asset is that it accommodates, and adjusts, to different athleticisms. In contrast to the time-tested method of using drills to teach infielders how to field ground balls. "How to Field a Ground Ball" promotes a superior method that necessitates the manipulation of an infielder's natural body movements to instill the postures and actions that comprise the fielding process. It teaches the instructor how to utilize never before recognized movements of that process to ensure that an infielder’s ability to field a ground ball will be maximized. The art of hitting a baseball has always received the most attention. No one has taken the time to study the art of fielding it. That is, until now. After reading “How to Field a Ground Ball” you will look at infielders differently than you ever have, and whether you agree or not with its teachings, this manual will have an impact on you.
