“Teach your kid to hit…so they don’t quit” is a great book for all ages. It teaches the fundamentals of hitting that the best players in the MLB have been using for 150 years. Please stop wasting your time and money on flawed instruction.

Kevin Gallagher

Kevin Gallagher is a person who tries on a daily basis to inspire hope in everyone he meets. This doesn’t take an extreme amount of effort, but rather simply recognizing that we all struggle with something. And even if we don’t know the exact worries or wounds of another, if we meet that unknown with kindness, it somehow has a soothing effect and we are all better for it.

In this book he addresses the struggle of a vast audience of parents who want to help their child participate in a sport, but lack the know-how. Kevin meets that struggle with insight and gentleness, providing hope to the parent via a solution they can learn and teach.

Kevin was a 3 sport athletic star in High School going on to play both College Basketball and Baseball. It was in Baseball he excelled the most.

He was a 3 time East Coast Athletic Conference ( ECAC ) All Star playing for Division 1A Pace University, University Athlete of the Year 3 years in a row, set 6 School Batting Records, was inducted into the Pace University Hall of Fame, finished in the Top Ten in batting and was an All Star playing for the Mt Vernon Generals in the Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League (ACBL) under the coaching guidance of Jack Fisher, former long-time Major League Pitcher and played with the Pittsburgh Pirates Class A team before an injury ended his career abruptly.

Kevin has also coached at numerous levels including Little League, American Legion, High School, College and in the Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League, a Major League Baseball Funded Summer League for Draft Prospects.

Writing this book was born from Kevin’s own wound of having his baseball career ended prematurely, and has been a passion of his for a long, long time.

This is just another example of Kevin meeting another’s struggle, in this case the parent trying to help his child, with insight, gentleness and hope.
