“At every level, the basics are taught.  The coaches get down in the grass with the Small Fry, showing them how it all works, taking them step-by-step through the basics of the game, holding the ball, throwing the ball, catching the ball.” –Harry Connolly, author.

“When I think back to my little league days I visualize how special the game was when I first discovered it , the feeling it gave me on my early success.  There is an old saying in baseball when things aren’t going well –‘ you must return to the basics’– the simplicity of hitting, throwing and fielding. –Cal Ripken, Jr.
