In our second issue of On Deck, we have tried to bring you information you'll want to share with everyone in your league.

Veteran coaches will enjoy our article on the most wasted 20 minutes of a catcher's life, and those with less experience might benefit from reading about the single most important thing they should focus on. And all parents will be interested in our article on guiding youngsters through their sports careers.  We've also mixed in some terrific offers from great merchants.

So please, don't keep this newsletter to yourself! Pass it on!

Best wishes,
