This story is for the kids who toss the bat to choose captains and pick teams, playing in a neighborhood field or an empty lot. You'll find no coaches, no concession stands, and sometimes just an old bat and ball. But once the first pitch is thrown, you'll find the real heart and soul of America. You'll find baseball in its purest form. And if you look a little closer, you'll find something more. Millions of children, here and abroad, do not experience the joy of playing sports with friends for lack of equipment and this book not only shines a spotlight on the situation, but a portion of all proceeds is donated to three non-profit organizations, Pitch In For Baseball, Sports Gift, and Good Sports, that provide sports equipment to kids who would otherwise go without. Endorsed by professional baseball players, Jack Hannahan, Robb Quinlan, Sean Casey, and future hall-of-famer, Craig Biggio, and teamed up with Louisville Slugger, Rawlings, and Modell's Sporting Goods, this title will help ensure that all kids have a glove of their own.
