In May 1975, quoted by a newspaper columnist, he said, “Coaching is a learning process, too, I guess.” It was a good guess. Now, with twenty-three years of experience as a youth baseball coach, he has learned a lot in the
process. Keepers of the Sandlot is his first book, answering the call to share a lifetime of experience with others.

Keepers of the Sandlot
Bill Severns wrote this book to encourage parents and coaches to enjoy their kids and protect their childhood. Your children are only children for a few years-they have plenty of time later in life to be adults; it’s up to us to guard their childhood, to make it fun, and to protect that feeling of playing in the sandlot.
We’re the Keepers of that feeling. We’re the Keepers of the Sandlot.
