Taking you inside the game, his insights will prompt you to think. My 13 year old son not only declares this as the best devotional book he's read, but he also claims it to be the best book of sports stories he's read. I think he finds the "unexpected" among the stories. He took the book along to camp and shared with his peers the funny and inspiring quotes and bits of trivia, which prompted conversation in those awkward moments among "strangers".

My husband is currently reading it and my brother-in-law has asked to be next in line, which means this book spans a generation of baseball lovers. My son tells me to keep my eye open for other publications by Dave Dravecky. Well this really wasn't a "life-changin" kind of book but it was very entertaining. I am a big baseball fan and I absolutely loved Dave's baseball stories from a christian perspective. It's got some great stories about different players and a good perspective on being a christian in the major leagues.

If you are a fan of sports then I definately recommend this one. See all 10 reviews. Most recent customer reviews. Published on April 24, Published on January 7, Customers who bought this item also bought.
