This interesting audio book gives a wide range of strategies for improving your Baseball game. I found it when my son took up baseball and I realised I didn't know a thing about the sport. So I was listening in the hope of finding out how the game is played and how I can help my son to become a better player by providing correct diet and the like.
The book covers all kinds of general strategies that would be helpful to anyone wanting to improve their performance, whatever sport they were involved with. From training, nutrition and rest to self-motivation and discovering your "playing personality" (passive, driven, competitive, aggressive) the book is packed with suggestions and explanations to help you improve your game.
The bulk of the audio takes a walk through all of the various baseball positions and discusses the skills needed to hone play in these positions. As someone who knows very little about how the game is played, I found this section very helpful and interesting. The narration is enthusiastic and that helps to maintain concentration though I don't think this is a one sitting book.
Well worth a listen if you are looking to improve performance in any sport, improve your baseball game, or if - like me - you just want to learn a bit more about how baseball is played.
I found this book on baseball tips and strategies to be an extremely useful and interesting listen. The author has managed to collate so much information on all the areas do with the game.
The chapter containing dietary tips and hydration advice was easy-to-understand and all the advice came with explanations to how they can help. Meanwhile, the mental strategies listed were eye-opening, in particular what to look for as a batter before you even get to the plate.
For me though the best part was definitely the chapter on improving your swing. The tips within this section were so helpful and a must-listen to anyone hoping to improve that side of there game.
There is also a chapter on pitching that is very impressive. It expertly breaks down each pitch and I learnt a great deal of what to look for as a hitter.
Just listening to this has given me an even greater appreciation for the pro game and all the nuances involved. This book will help you improve your game so much. Highly recommended for anyone who plays or has an interest in baseball!
I really enjoyed listening to this much more than I thought I would. I wanted to get a better idea about the game as I am dating an American and wanted to be able to understand more about the game and its history.
I found that it really explained how the game has developed and adapted over the years. I particularly found it interesting about how much change the ball itself has gone through and all the different materials that have been used over the years.
I love all the trivia, facts and stats throughout, like the history of team names and I found the section on player traditions and superstitions particularly interesting.
Great guide for beginners of baseball enthusiasts.
This audio book is like my instant knight in shining armour! Our teacher gave us homework about baseball and it got me really worried as I had no idea about the sport! I know that there are a lot of materials that can be found online but hey, there’s nothing better than an audio book wherein you don’t have to do anything but listen!
As I was listening, I was also taking a few notes which were really useful! I found it a lot less time consuming and it is really efficient. This is definitely worth one’s time and money!
I am not a sports minded person at all but this one didn’t get me bored and I actually think that it is quite interesting. I successfully submitted my homework the next day and my teacher was quite impressed! Two thumbs up to the author!
Very high top ten
Very interesting is passage about the sport psychology where the types of players like: catcher, pitcher and batter depend on their personal skills and characters. So it is very important for the coach to know their team. In your team you can have aggressive players, smart players, competitive players as well as negative ones. So it is a hard job to select them for different positions.
Joshua Mackey is my favorite narrator, that helps me to understand audio book better and in the most enjoyable way that just reading. You can actively listen and watching video links that are provided to better understanding.
Very informative book that introduce to rules of the game, types of players and their position in the field.
McCloud provides very vivid description, that engage you to watch baseball and helps to understand the rules of this passionate game.
Very important is nutrition because baseball is long game and demands extremely good condition. McCloud offers you proper baseball’s nutrition diet which fuel your body for enough period of time. Also provides links for video how to training the strength and the speed, the running and the cardio exercises.
Feel free to email me if there are any problems, I will respond. Pls leave feedback
McCloud's book is a great listen and really does provide the tools to great baseball. It's presented in an easy to access style with very clear descriptions of the strategies and goes a long way in improving your game. Would make a great gift too for any baseball fan. The audiobook starts from the very foundations off the field and builds up to detailed and important in-game practices that can get you great results. The strategies here can really make a big difference, so I've no hesitation in recommending this book. 5 stars!
Yes. Because there are some techniques that may need to be reviewed again
This book doesn't have characters as we known them so i will pass this one
Mackey has always been my favorite. he is always 6 over 5
The chapter where the author talks about swinging the bat got me interested since i was having trouble with bat too.
This book is good for a beginner coach and player alike
"Learn Techniques on Playing Baseball"
It is up there with the top 20
I enjoyed the explanation of techniques. They were very easy to understand and do myself. I thought a good part about this book was about mentally preparation and preparing the body. You can play well, but if you are not mentally and physically prepared, you will not perform well. This part also helped to understand other players and their traits when they are aggressive, passive or anything else.
Joshua Mackey always acts as if this is the most important book he has narrated. It is perfection and he makes you want to listen to more.

"This Book Knocks Others Out Of The Park!"
Baseball is an intricate game with dozens of rules. It doesn't matter how good you are at hitting home-runs, if you forget any one of the rules you could find yourself losing a game you could just as easily have won.
Luckily, this instructional baseball book can teach you tricks, tips, and give you hints that will be vital to improving your baseball game. This book managed to teach me a few things even though I had a coach at the time.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who's looking to get into baseball, or anyone who already plays baseball but wants to take their game to the next level.
"Baseball made a little easier"
This is a great book if you are interested in baseball and you enjoy audio books. It goes into pretty good detail about the game and gives some great tips on how to improve it. I got it because I enjoy the books that Ace puts out and I am always on the run so I listen to books in my car. Also, if I can improve my game even a little, I can do a better job when I play the game with friends and family. Who wants to look like an idiot? I don't have to be an expert but it sure helps to have quick access to tips and tricks. I recommend this book!
"Great tips for a better baseball game!"
I was really impressed with the amount of strategies and tips in this audio. I was just hoping for a few things I could improve upon but this audio gave me even more than that! The hitting strategies are really outstanding and my favorite part is the mental techniques for improving yourself and your performance. Some really outstanding health information as well! I stopped taking caffeine and the gotu kola and ginkgo biloba are great for improving concentration! Highly recommended!
"All the strategies you need on the best sport"
I am in my 30's and have been interested in getting involved in a sport to stay active. Some of my friends play on a baseball team. I knew very very little about baseball until listening to this book. I think I am going to try out for the team and join in on the fun with my friends.
I thought this was a excellent audio book for preparing someone to improve their baseball game. The author has included so many great tips on how to improve your game while being strategic. Like Chapter 2 on “Mental Strategies”. The author explains the different types of baseball players like, “The Competitive Player” and “The Smart Player”. There are many mental aspects to improving your game that you would normally not think about or think to do.
I enjoyed listening to this book while I was on my daily walks and drives in the car. Listening to a book is extremely convenient when you don't have the time and privilege of reading at home.
After listening to this book I now know all the tips and strategies you could implement into your baseball game to make it more than just the basic old game I always knew. I feel I am well prepared to take my baseball game to the next level and show them what I got! Great read for anyone who plays baseball or interested in a great game of baseball!
