A Guide for Young Softball Pitchers sets out everything needed to develop the skills, physical conditioning, and training regimen that will bring success and satisfaction on the playing field. In this great reference for players, coaches, and parents, veteran youth coaches Don Oster and Jacque Hunter share their decades of knowledge on forming young athletes and helping them to reach their potential. The pitcher plays the most important position in softball, and pitching is the hardest position to master, particularly for the young player, who is still growing physically and mentally. An untrained pitcher will seldom reach her full athletic capacity and will suffer needless frustration; an ill-trained pitcher risks injury and the premature end of a playing career; both will have a harder time throwing strikes. A Guide for Young Softball Pitchers teaches, in clear and readily understood fashion, the mechanics of the perfect delivery and the strategy of dominant pitching. Hunter and Oster also stress the value of flexibility, balance, and cross-training in other sports that condition the whole body, as well as the importance of a good attitude and of having fun while working efficiently and diligently to improve.Oster, Don is the author of 'Guide For Young Softball Pitchers', published 2005 under ISBN 9781592287345 and ISBN 1592287344.
