The book is a guide for parents of female softball players. The book provides an easy-to-read format for preparing an athlete to successfully compete for college scholarships. The author analyzes the variables in preparing children mentally, physically and socially. These variables are then juxtaposed against the needs of the college coach. The book utilizes the concept of the "Division 1 NCAA a.k.a. D-1 player" in creating a paradigm from which a parent may begin to analyze their child in their formative years. The book uses case studies. It raises controversial issues that plague the "fast-pitch" softball world and the impact these have on a student's contention for an athletic scholarship. The book attempts to raise the standard in parental responsibility beyond the "politically correct" world.
