    A great read for lovers and non-lovers of America's greatest pastime.

    This story is a great tale of childhood baseball, yet it is deeper than most. Yes, it is about those warm, sunny days where children experience the euphoria of victory, but it is also about the relationships built around the game. Children learn about trust, integrity, and the thrill of success long before the words mean anything. Through sports, and specifically baseball, kids experience the most important things in life: fun, learning, and the acquisition of knowledge. It is a knowledge lost to their coaches, a knowledge of what exactly the meaning is behind the game, behind sports. It is a child's separation between fun and winning that allows the game to be pure. A Coach's Letter to His Son explores the joys of childhood and how parents and coaches have, sadly, drifted from the games purpose, that of fun and healthy activity, to the dark, sinister lure of pure competition for the sake of winning. This book made me realize again what our greatest pastime is truly about and that it is not too late to reverse the corruption that is now becoming far too common among parents and coaches. If you are a coach or a parent of one who plays baseball, or even sports in general, you owe it to yourself to read this book, and even more so to the kids.
