We start with the feature e-manuscript: The Domestic Vietnam. The 520 page book has been in circulation for three years, in the past generally available on Amazon and other web-sellers for $28.95, plus shipping, priority U.S. Mail, $7. In the near future the book will only be available with the Vietnam Veterans Youth Scholarship Program. (Many have said The Domestic Vietnam is the ‘best book’ they have ever read!)
Also in the ‘Domestic’ series: The Domestic Guantanamo (generally $24.95, plus shipping, 408 pages) in the book selling marketplace for 18 months. For those of the era, it is difficult to separate Vietnam from events in Cuba, and thus one book flows to the other easily. This book will also no longer be available, except through our Vietnam Veterans Youth Scholarship Program.
The ‘Domestic’ series continues with two new book releases in celebration of our Vietnam Veterans Youth Scholarship Program: The Domestic Panama and The Domestic Puerto Rico. See book covers and explanation of all books in the ‘Domestic’ series as part of this web-site. Characters and events flow from one book to another. (All characters in the Domestic series are built around true life figures.)
That’s not all: There is a fifth book in this initial offering … Perhaps the most fun book of all. Coach Fox has a lifetime in coaching ladies softball and youth baseball. Five years ago Fox summarized his coaching techniques and strategies in his first coaching book, then revised that book to the current: Softball / Baseball … The Next Level … (Work Hard / Play Smart).
The Next Level is a large book, with great softball and baseball stories from a lifetime in the game. At the end of each chapter there is space for notes about your team or individual player.
The Next Level is full of hundreds of tips on playing and coaching detail and technique, as well as disciplines of the game, written for Parents, Players, Umpires and those in league or recreation organizations. Hitting, catching, infield D, pitching, game situations, all included. Chapter 7, The Gaps of the Game, is a long chapter full of technique and detail that we know should be coached, but have little time for. The Next Level is simply the best book about youth softball and baseball ever assembled. Please review the book’s explanation on this website.
Fox – “There were several inspirations for finally writing The Next Level. One particular experience was when I helped a younger couple coach their Babe Ruth League community baseball team, boys 15 and 16 years old. The father was an independent construction contractor, who tried his best to coach, but really was not sure how. His wife was nothing but fun and supportive in every way. A neat couple! He once simply told me; ‘he tries to learn one thing every practice and every game’. With The Next Level, he and a million others can learn many things, any time they want to.”
The Next Level would make a great gift for families, individuals and/or whole teams to share and get on the same Next Level.
