This short story was a hit with my oldest son, he is at the age of understanding the emotional side of life! Austin has always been very sensitive to his emotions and this book opened his heart and eyes to Bobby. Just this year, Austin at the age of 8 started little league "minors", and wanted to pitch like Bobby! This book is something that we as parents can have discussions with our children over life and the adversities that it brings to us even at a young age... I want my son to dream BIG, and their is failure in life... a lot of it, especially in this game of baseball! There is anxieties, and set backs. This book brings out in a short amount of time some amazing discussions! The power of the breath, confidence, and postive personal strength and belief! Thanks to this author, my uncle- Guy Bishop; he has once again touched the heart of another fan of his! I thank you for the inspiration that you have allowed my son (your great nephew) to experience and feel before he stepped foot on that mound of his! Go get'em!

I read Guy's book to my ten year old granddaughter who knows nothing of baseball. When I had finished she said, with much enthusiasm, "That was good!" I asked her what she got out of it and she said, "He never gave up."
This little book is filled with little gems, a must read!
Knowing Guy since childhood I thought that maybe this was his story. He like the character in the book has always been a winner, driven to do it right and the right thing.

Guy has written a very inspirational story that every young child should have the opportunity to read. It's such an affirmation about how the young spirit can overcome difficulties in their young lives. Great job Guy!

Perfect short story with a message all kids who have had bumps along the way--and what normal kid hasn't had them?--should read and digest. Congratulations to the author!

We've all had those moments of fear whether sports related or not. This story captures perfectly that decision we make to release our anxiety and let confidence, passion and talent prevail. A great lesson for little leaguers and big leaguers.

Very inspirational. Great tool for helping a young athlete, or just a young person, become more confident, more determined and more self-respecting. A must-read for kids who feel they're "not good enough" -- at anything.

This is a great book. Easy to read and entertaining. When I was reading it I was right back to when my boys were playing Little League and some of there feelings. It also sends a great message to all.
