Coaching Youth Baseball: How to Teach Pitching and Other Baseball Skills

David Grossman has been coaching youth baseball since 1999 and before that he coached adult softball for 10 years. “Coaching youth baseball is far better,” he says. COACHING YOUTH BASEBALL is a guidebook for coaches and parents offering the best of three decades of coaching experience. From teaching kids pitching skills to identifying bad habits in batting to running a perfect practice, Coach Grossman lines out text and instructions covering all the basics of youth baseball. With dozens of photos illustrating technique and coaching tips, this book will mean the difference between a ho-hum baseball season and a memorable favorite summer — for you and your kids.

David Grossman has coached all levels of Youth Baseball — Tee Ball, A, AA, AAA, Majors, All-Stars and Travel.
He has served on his Little League board of directors and was Tee Ball Commissioner (one year), Quartermaster (four years), and Director of Safety and Training (one year) for Reston Little League in Virginia. He also lived in England for three years, where he served as the Minors Commissioner for London Little League.

“My day job is Computer Science professor,” he says. “I have taught for the last 25 years; I started as a graduate teaching assistant at the University of Central Florida. After that I was an Adjunct Professor at Maryland, George Mason, and George Washington. I taught full time from 1999-2012 at the Illinois Institute of Technology, and in 2021 I became a faculty affiliate at Georgetown University in Washington DC.”

This book is the culmination of many years of coaching and learning and trial and error — and the highlights of an admirable coaching career.
