Synopsis: Winner of the National Parenting Publications Award.
Willie Mays said that good players can play with their bodies, but great players play with their hearts and minds as well. The same is true for fathering. In Covering Home, author Jack Petrash combines a love for children with his love for the game of baseball to give fathers, or fathers-to-be, a new perspective on raising children.
From the first few pages of Covering Home...
There is a place where out passionate commitments converge, and it is there that fathering and baseball intertwine. The lessons that I have learned in one have instructed me in the other; how in fathering as in baseball you have to work on fundamentals, develop good habits, avoid errors, work on your control, and always keep in mind that you can't win them all...
In the busyness of modern times where both parents work and travel and go back to school, fathers are repeatedly covering home. Knowing when to cover home is essential. It requires knowledge of what should happen in a given situation but also an awareness of what could go wrong. Whether it's an overthrow, a passed ball, a snow day or a sick child, we need to be alert, as well as ready and willing to act...
Like baseball, fathering is a path of development...[It] will call on us to grow in ways we never imagined.
From the Inside Flap: "I have so many memories throughout my life that have been provided through baseball, but the strongest ones are those provided by my father. Almost all of the life lessons that my brothers, sister and I learned from dad were related to us through baseball. Jack Petrash seems to have captured that deep connection between fathers, their children, and baseball in Covering Home." --Cal Ripken, Jr.
