Synopsis: This is a book of pure inspiration. Many of the sporting world's most profound achievements and displays of humanity are never recorded. They happen on sandlots, asphalt, and backyards. Stories of well-known athletes and teams abound in popular literature--what is missing is an exaltation of the moments that can happen to any of the rest of us--and do. No Ordinary Game is the grandstand for everyday miracles.

From the Back Cover: A young boy nearly paralyzed in a car accident runs for the first time in his life during a baseball game. A refugee family from East Africa plays soccer in a suburban backyard on Thanksgiving Day. A group of college boys is challenged to a game of basketball against the women’s varsity team in an empty gym. These are no ordinary games.

This is a book of pure inspiration. Many of the sporting world’s most profound achievements and displays of humanity are never recorded. They happen on sandlots, asphalt, and backyards. Stories of well-known athletes and teams abound in popular literature – what is missing is an exaltation of the moments that can happen to any of the rest of us – and do. No Ordinary Game is the grandstand for everyday miracles. It shows how any one of us can transcend possibility or lighten life’s burdens simply by picking up a ball. It is a collection of poignant memoirs of games played without grandstands. Some of the stories relive everyday miracles, while others find the souls of players ascending into the spirits of the games they play. They tell of the glory, despair, and humanity that can be found any afternoon or evening, at any playground, gym, or empty field.
