Illustrated by Paul Meisel. With his solid work ethic, knowledge of baseball, and contagious enthusiasm, Kirby Puckett's an inspiration to everyone on his team--a team that's just been expanded to include every six- to nine-year-old who plays the game. Kerby Puckett s Baseball Games is an illustrated book about learning and improving basic baseball skills through 34 great games, no-frills drills, and insider instruction from Kirby. These are the fundamentals. There's hitting, including how to pick the right bat, how to find a comfortable grip, how to swing for the fence, or lay down the perfect bunt. Running, with games like Speed Tag, Rundown, Capture the Glove, and Base Burglar. Fielding, with Kirby's Gold Glove tips (he won six of them). And 15 games and drills to teach throwing and pitching basics--which kids will be able to do using the baseball that's packaged with the book. It's a "soft-hit" Puckett practice ball that is custom-printed with lefty and righty grips for the basic overhand pitch. With baseball rules, scoring basics, baseball talk--and Kirby Puckett's veteran insights and words of encouragement all along the way--it's an all-star guide. 126,000 copies in print.
