Publisher's Summary

Who else wants a competitive edge?

Join more than 145,000 players and coaches, from World Series champions to youth levels, who have found playing heads-up baseball helps them overcome the failure, frustration, and fear the game throws at you each day and instead play with confidence, consistency, and composure under pressure. 

Talent, strength, and great mechanics don't matter if you can't compete in games. Developed by working with elite players and coaches over the past 40 years, the strategies and tools in this audiobook (an "upgrade" to the classic 1994 edition) arm you with the approach you need to find out how good you can be at baseball.

Great for coaches and players

As a fan, not a coach or player, this book wasn't written for me. But it's essentially a self-improvement book for players and coaches. With ideas that could be attributed to probably any stressful job - or just life.
Honestly, the only thing I wish this book had (besides juicy baseball gossip) is a stronger leaning towards applying the practices in it towards life. - Though there is a clear understanding that they would ask that too.

Fantastic Info - The Missing Link

This book is excellent and covers everything most advanced baseball players learn after its too late. This information is the foundation for any seriously competitive ball player. Very well written and great audio delivery.
