A massive course, 55 lesson plans which cover Baseball.  This course is a dream come true for the student, age 9-adult, who truly wants to understand and play the game in all its glory and complexity.

The first section covers what games are, providing a solid foundation.  Then the rules and method of play of baseball are covered in great detail.

The principle skills one uses playing baseball are developed, using as a tool links to film of some of the greatest hitters and pitchers in history, as well as instructional videos often found free on the Internet.

As the student develops skills, they continue to study the complete history of American baseball.  Every lesson is hands on, eye-opening fun.  Numerous films are linked to, but the student will need access to Ken Burn's Baseball, Field of Dreams, and Eight Men Out.

The student learns to do far more than swing a bat and catch a ball! He is taught the entire history of the National Pastime, covering the greatest of players from Ty Cobb and Honus Wagner, Walter Johnson and Christy Mathewson, Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig to Ted Williams and Joe Dimaggio, Willy Mays, Hank Aaron and Mickey Mantle and Sandy Koufax and Nolan Ryan, to more modern greats. The student then develops his own all-time "dream team", demonstrating an understanding of the history of the game. The student is taught how to keep statistics, and read them, an interesting lesson in math and percentages. History, math, geography, vocabulary all play into the student's experience.

If you're looking for a P.E. elective for your homeschooler, and if he or she is interested in baseball, this is a home run!

(This course really works best with a group of students, say not less than 4. Each student will need a baseball glove (or "mit"). You'll need a bat or two and at least a few baseballs. You might want to work with softballs at first, and then graduate to hardballs. You will need access to a baseball diamond at a park, or an open area where you can more or less re-create one.)

IMPORTANT NOTE – A student should be checked out by a doctor before starting any kind of exercise program, and receive some sort of medical "okay" to exercise.This is especially true for students with health conditions or challenges. If the student is doing the program, or any P.E. program, and starts displaying health difficulties, a doctor should be consulted without delay, and the program suspended.
