What is supposed to be a coffee table book is probably the most succinct reference for little league coaches I've seen. Read those books for some good ideas but if you really want the fundamentals broken down and explained how they're done at a professional level so you can teach them right then take a look at this book. Plus, there are many tips from the pros in all aspects of the game to give you plenty to think about and try to apply to yourself or a team. The fantastic photography illustrating every topic is just an added bonus.
