Baseball Concepts receives contract from MC Sports


MC Sport’s stores will be featuring a new product this spring that will aid youth baseball coaches/parents in teaching proper baseball skills to their kids in a creative and easy way. Baseball Concepts LLC of Zeeland, MI has received a volume order contract from MC Sport’s for their book product called “Coaching the Little Boys of Summer”. The regional sporting goods giant has purchased an undisclosed quantity of coaches guide books to be sold in some of their 80 stores across the mid-west USA. “Being selected by MC Sport’s as a vendor is a great blessing and tremendous opportunity for our business,” said president and founder Jeff VanHuis. Baseball Concepts has developed and published a simple yet very detailed coaches guide for parents and youth coaches of players who are 4-18 years old. The book is just sixty-two pages, but very easy to follow with over one hundred detailed color photos with excellent descriptions. MC Sports senior buyer of team sports, Dave Regnerus states, “We see this book as a critical teaching tool for all coaches of youth baseball teams, whether they are new to coaching or have a few years of experience. It is easy to use, organized well, and has a good deal of relevant illustrations.”

This book is also geared to creating All-Star Dads and parents. A unique attraction this book offers is the strong message that’s sent to parents about ways to improve relationships with their kids through baseball. “We have aimed to provide parents, specifically dads, with creative ways to make the father/son bond stronger by having a positive experience playing baseball together” said VanHuis. The hope now is for parents and youth coaches around the USA to take hold of this product, embrace it, and use it to strengthen their youth baseball leagues. The book features a large dose of baseball instruction, but also addresses character and what that should like in coaches, parents in the stands, and in teammates. This is a product that will hopefully make a positive difference for all users. VanHuis added, “The product’s foundational principles are very much in line with the values and business approach of MC Sports, we are very pleased and grateful to be associated here.”

This product has also been instrumental in the “Made in Michigan” concept, as the book was developed and written in Michigan, and published by Black Lake Press of Holland. Regnerus said “Coach Van Huis has an obvious passion for our young athletes and the sport of baseball. MC Sports is proud to offer a product made right here in West Michigan that will benefit players and coaches all over the Midwest.”
