    My first yr coaching a rookie league and without this app I'd been lost. I know baseball very well but coaching and coaching kids is a different story. This app wrkd and works great.
  • Terrible

    Can I get a refund, please, listen to the other reviews. Worst ever.
  • Not worth it

    By GaCoach
    Seriously disappointed in this effort by human kinetics and Babe Ruth. Content is very basic and does not provide enough detail for advanced ages or skill sets. I thought the app would be helpful for our team and seriously am disappointed. If you are going to have photos of a coach teaching signs, please pay respect to the game and do more than put a hat on a guy with jeans and a poorly fitting polo. Practice plans and direction are worthless. So disappointed in this effort.
  • Not Even worth $2.00

    I thought the videos would be good for kids but they are too short. The pitching mechanics are broken into many small videos that keep repeating over and over in a very short time (1sec). There isn't even video of the entire swing, pitch, etc. This app would be better if there were videos of the full pitch or swing that could be watched on a slower time frame.
  • Basic information

    This is good for first time coaches only. Very basic information. If the full rulebook was included it would be worth the price.
  • Great app for new coaches

    By MarkDanielGCIL
    I'm looking forward to putting this app to use this coming season. Video is high quality and show the core skills. Planning practices will be easier with this app. I recommend it especially for new coaches.
