so far good, but could have been better with some simplistic explanation of how game starts, how players comes to bat as game goes on, all I mean is little practicality would have increased the impact of the course.

As far as the instructor's information and approach he did great. The only reason I knocked a star off is when something is labeled a bonus ...to me...that feels as if someone is saying 'you don't need this for the certificate, but you can have it if you want. However, clearly UDEMY won't give you a certificate of completion without it. So, I'm not sure what is up with that, but it's the only reason I dinged half a star off.

It's a free course. It is what it is. If you have zero knowleged of the game, you'll probably get a lot out of it.

AmirSadegh23 February 2019

The course is great... I'm learning new things already, but I already had a very basic background. I think for someone with absolutely zero knowledge or information about baseball, so far the course is a bit fast. But for me it has been great so far. EDIT: Well, I'm halfway through, and I gotta admit that it's not the instructor's fault that baseball is by far one of the most complicated games out there. :D I love it already, but man it's hard to learn. Just like many other things, you have to watch games as well in order to fully understand the concepts. Watching the games will be like a practice for this course, and without practice you won't fully understand the game.

I'm really really very grateful for this course ..I'm a new fan for baseball and never really understood how is it played before and now I can understand thanx to this course ..really awesome .

Jeffrey1 April 2018

The course provides a comprehensive overview of just about everything to do with baseball. The course was a bit dry, however it is functional course to learn and understand baseball.

Margaret19 February 2018

I've learned so much already! I didn't know what a shortstop was or the different leagues. I'm so grateful :)

Margaret26 February 2017

I'm a baseball fan, but still managed to learn a couple of new things, especially in the stats lectures. This is a comprehensive overview of what's involved in a baseball game and helps fans keep track of what's going on. I definitely recommend this course.

James15 November 2016

Would be better if it b rolled some actual game footage. But this a perfect intro for my kids and I to watch to introduce them to the game.

Prem7 October 2016

Just moved to Canada and started following baseball. I'm an avid cricket fan and wanted to know more about this sport. Enjoying so far. Good work Phil :)

Anil10 September 2016

Good course for anyone that wants to learn about baseball. If you already know about baseball don't get it, it'll bore you! lol

Joy22 July 2016

Phil speaks slowly and clearly. His talks are organized by topic, so a beginner can really understand.

Kathleen26 February 2016

Liked the course and generally good explanations. I am a lifetime baseball lover but I did learn a few things!

Luís17 October 2015

I knew nothing about baseball before starting the course and now I can easily watch a game and understand what is going on. Very easy to follow and instructive.
