Would you like to find out how the game of baseball has influenced the lives of 140 Major League ballplayers? In his first book, "Stepping Up to the Plate", David Kloser set about gathering information by interviewing over 300 of today’s Major League Baseball players to get their reactions to the importance of teamwork, how they have overcome personal challenges, and how they define success.
We all KNOW that youth sports teach our children valuable lessons that can be used throughout their lives. Now, find out what valuable lessons such ballplayers as Jason Giambi, Gary Sheffield, John Smoltz and Alex Rodriguez have learned from baseball. Players talk about the kind of teammates they want on their team, how they deal with those embarrassing errors, how they handle obnoxious fans, and how a positive attitude affects their game.
Each chapter in the book ends with two opportunities for the reader to reflect upon what he/she has just read. "Step up to the challenge” asks the reader to answer questions about how they would react in various situations. "Step out of the box to look for the signs” asks the reader to put himself in someone else’s shoes for a week with a specific challenge.
"Stepping Up to the Plate: 2nd Inning" is now available. When you order, you can request the author autograph the books. The new book contains more players, more interviews and two new chapters; one on respect and a bonus chapter on life lessons. The new book goes for $9.95.
