Little Things That Win Big Games
by Larry Gabe
with Ed Nielsen

Little Things Win Big Games is a unique, one of a kind book. It is the only baseball book that discusses all of the baseball fundamentals by position and by skill set, including pictures (145) that illustrate the many points discussed. The book will be instructive to coaches at all levels, players (10+ years of age to major League Level) who are interested in improving their teams or individual performance. You will learn how to play baseball the "RIGHT WAY". Many of these fundamentals are no longer taught by today's volunteer coaches. This is impacting the level of knowledge of our players moving up to high school or as they enter college or professional levels.

PLAYING MENTALLY ALERT gives you the competitive edge. You will capitalize on your opponents mistakes and weakness, not making the mental errors for your team. The team that performs the fundamentals (the little things) best will win the game. You don't give extra outs to your opponent. Watch your opponents during warm up, note the strong arms, weak arms, quickness/slowness, note the opportunities for your team. However, to play mentally alert you must fully understand the game and rules of baseball. Little Things Win Big Games will prepare you to play 100% mentally alert.

Chapters cover:

  • Mental alertness and the competitive edge
  • Infield play
  • First baseman
  • Second baseman
  • Shortstop
  • Third baseman
  • Catcher
  • Pitcher
  • Rundowns and pick off plays
  • Outfield play
  • Hitting
  • The art of bunting
  • Base running
  • Stealing bases
  • Sliding
  • Strength and conditioning

Everybody Needs a Head Coach - Book & Video combo
With Mike Jarvis,
former Head Coach at St. John's and George Washington; America East Coach of the Year (1990); 2x American East Tournament Champion; 2000 Big East regular season Champion

Everyone needs a head coach. Coaches mentor individuals to more than just winning games. They shape young men and women for a life beyond basketball.

Throughout his fascinating 45-year career, Coach Mike Jarvis has experienced what it feels like to be on top of the world. He also knows what it's like on the other end of college basketball's vast spectrum (and every place in between). Through it all, he has come to some significant conclusions about the true meaning of life.

In the book Everybody Needs A Head Coach, Coach Jarvis shares stories from his incredible run as a championship high school coach and his successful years as the leader of four NCAA Division I programs that have included interactions with high profile figures such as Red Auerbach, Patrick Ewing, Michael Jordan, Ron Artest, Mike Krzyezewski, Adrian Branch, Sam Jones, Rumeal Robinson, and Matt Damon. But more importantly, Coach Jarvis and co-author Chad Bonham turn those experiences into 23 life-affirming lessons that reflect relevant biblical principles such as determination, forgiveness, leadership, community, respect, commitment, justice, encouragement, humility, grace, legacy and purpose that provide ample opportunities for individual and team studies.

Everybody Needs a Head Coach (DVD)

Included with the book is a DVD lecture featuring coach Jarvis at the 2016 Nike Championship Basketball Coaches clinic in Las Vegas. This presentation provides an overview of the book. It blends core values, plans, opportunities, perseverance and faith.

In this presentation you will discover:

  • Key characteristics ambitious young coaches need to climb the coaching ladder
  • Tools that help with daily motivation, self-improvement and legacy building
  • Your purpose as a coach and how that can help you motivate and teach your players

Coach Jarvis offers something more valuable than his best offenses and defenses. And he does it with a zeal that will inspire you to excel.
