At once inspirational and thought provoking, these meditations blend life lessons with wisdom from the baseball diamond. More than any other sport, baseball continues to captivate the national psyche, and included here are fifty accessible meditations on themes such as Little things add up, We all go through slumps, Don't go for the bad pitch, and Every position is important. Each meditation begins with a quotation and ends with a question to ponder.

About the Author:

Glenn Dromgoole has been a journalist for more than thirty years. He is the author of nineteen books, including Good Night Cowboy, A Little Cup of Kindness, and What Dogs Teach Us. Phil Christopher is a Baptist minister and pastor.

Review:

"This is a remarkably simple book—which is a positive in my book. Life isn't always simple, but the messages and principles of leading a good life generally are—and the authors do a very good job in distilling complicated issues down to simple parables and questions."  —BaseballBookReview.com



"Dromgoole . . . and Christopher . . . both in Abilene, Texas, give each passage some great brevity and soul that get to the heart of the message quickly and effectively."   —Los Angeles Daily News, sports blog "Farther Off the Wall" with Tom Hoffarth
