The author calls upon a lifetime of experience to answer that question in three parts. One: Failures by hitters on an average team exceed four thousand per season. That number can be reduced by at least 50 percent, drastically reducing the frequency of batting slumps. Two: Failures by starting pitchers can be eliminated. Three: The two biggest on-field problems for managers today are when to pull the starting pitcher and finding a way to get the players to play the game the proper way, and those problems can also be eliminated. If you think these claims are not realistic, be prepared to change your mind. As much as Verle D. Dresback loved baseball through his high school years, it did not love him. However, he was good enough in other sports to receive scholarship offers to play basketball and football at Montana State, the Butte School of Mines and Carol College in Billings, Montana. These three scholarship letters only offered books and tuition. However, he received a fourth letter from the draft board. He chose the Air Force, where he served his country from 1954 to 1974.During the last half of his USAF career, he taught advanced airborne electronic maintenance in the mornings, and coached youngsters in baseball, football and basketball in the afternoons. About the Author: What Verle D. Dresback did during his next twenty-year career makes him uniquely qualified to give advice. When he retired from Ingalls Ship Building in 1994, he was a senior engineer in the reliability section of the engineering department. His credentials include identifying failures and creating solutions. http: //sbpra.com/VerleDDresbac
