    5Good for begining coaches and experienced coaches
    By Kirk
    This video really does a great job breaking down pitching to a young adult or even childrens level. Just what you expect from Ripken baseball.

    If you're a begining youth coach, this really does help you break it down for any age group. Step by step for any age to comprehend. If you've been coaching youth baseball for awhile, it's also a good reminder that they are children. That each one has different rates of learning.

    It does not get into many advanced things for pitching, as far as defense and complex pitches, but it goes into great detail on basics.
