Ratings and Reviews

Not worth it

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

strike three

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.

Works great

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.
