See what happens inside the game.

This book is about what makes baseball the sport it is today. We'll take you inside a game to see what individual players are thinking.

If life is about winning and competition, then the game of baseball is rich soil in which to develop success.

Discover the greatest innovations to the game.

Because baseball relies equally upon chance and skill, you will discover some of the tactics players have used to try and improve their odds for success: changing the bat, scuffing the ball, bunting, stealing bases, and the use of any number of superstitions and good-luck charms, to name a few.

You will be introduced to innovators such as John Hillerich, Barry Bonds, Russ Ford, Harry Decker, Albert Spalding, and Alexander Cartwright. You will discover the connection between the sport of baseball and dodge ball, find out why there is a large bump in the middle of the playing field, and be transported to the ballpark for the first time "The Star Spangled Banner" was sung by the crowd. You will be inspired by the lives of athletes who pursued their dreams and continued to hope even when it appeared they would never play again.
