The fascinating true-life journey of a young man and a dream that lasted a lifetime. Masterfully told and inspirational, this is a story for all to enjoy. Here's more... Glenn Robert Davis (nicknamed Bob) was just a regular kid from suburban Chicago—until he spent an incredible season on big-league fields with many of the stars of an exciting era in MLB history. Illustrated with pictures and memorabilia from his experiences, this is a story of personal growth, filled with happiness, a bit of drama, some sadness, incredible joy and a few significant challenges to overcome along the way. While the focus of this journey is on the Game he loves and the experiences he had, it also speaks to the lessons Bob learned that he still carries with him in his life today. An enjoyable read for baseball lovers of all ages, When the Grain Ran True is warm, witty and moving while also providing great insight into the great Game of baseball, both Then and Now.

About the Author:

Raised in Glenview, Il, in 1965 Glenn (then known by his nickname Bob) was chosen in a contest sponsored by the Chicago Daily News to be the Visiting Team Bat Boy for the Chicago White Sox. To qualify as a contestant, he wrote a letter in the requisite 50 words and after a day-long interview process at old Comiskey Park, the rest became history for the then fourteen year old. Later, he graduated from the University of Illinois-Chicago with a Bachelors degree in Communications. Glenn became the CEO of a national professional organization before entering the rapidly evolving world of technology in 1986. There, he held various leadership roles in marketing and sales for several noted software companies including Chipsoft, Great Plains and Microsoft. During that time, Glenn honed his writing skills while expanding his love of the game of baseball. He served as a coach and teacher of the game for many years and now watches many local high school and college teams play, nearly on a daily basis. Today, Glenn is an avid motorcycle rider and the very proud father of his son Chris, himself an accomplished baseball player, and of his beautiful daughter Ashley. Glenn now resides in Walnut Creek, CA with his lovely wife Merci where he can still watch his beloved White Sox on MLB.TV.
