any manager of a slow-pitch-softball team who aspires to a championship season should read this book first (if only I'd read it 6 years ago...). though only 81 pages long, it's chock-full of hitting, batting, and fielding tips for the player & advice for the manager on how to create a lineup, coach a base, and gain a better understanding of the game.
former player-manager George R. Perry discusses batting strategy—e.g., where to hit the ball, and when (i.e., with how many runners on base, with how many outs, etc.)—as well as defensive techniques that individual fielders can use to keep their team in the game or seal a victory.
the only reason that I didn't give the book 5 stars is that Perry didn't seem to have written it with co-ed teams—or teams that use more than 10 batters in their lineup—in mind, and how that might affect defensive lineup or batting order. that's the only "hole" in his otherwise fine & useful guide that every team manager should own, memorize, and apply to the game—along with the rules, of course.
