What is it about baseball that makes the game such an integral part of the American landscape? No other sport evokes such a passionate following and drives grown men and young children to pour over box scores or devote countless hours discussing trivia. Unchanging, it is a part of the nation's fabric tying its past to its present and future. Baseball is a game of eternal childhood, where heartthrob and heartbreak go hand in hand. It is poetry of motion, colossal power, raw speed, and pinpoint accuracy, a classic tale of failure and redemption in which the heroic emerges and touches our collective soul. However, championships are not won by superstars but rather by teamwork and sacrifice. So it is with life. Bouncing back from failure, adapting to new circumstances, and handling success are all paramount to making it. Bunt, steal, hit and run, or swing away--like the game, life is filled with important choices. How we manage those decisions will determine where we wind up at the end. These experiences birth the life lessons that define human existence. Life Lessons from Baseballcaptures stories of baseball's top players and brings them to life in a way that is relevant to everyone. This one-of-a-kind book captures insightful stories of the game's best hitters, pitchers, fielders, and the timeless truths that unfold through their lives. These stories will inspire you. And you will discover that you, too, can safely navigate life's fickle nine innings and be part of a winning team.
