    all about baseball, coaching kids and about life

    What I Know About Baseball Is What I Know About Life By Peter G. Doumit is a quick and easy read filled with insights, wonderful quotations and humor. I recommend this book for everyone, especially for those working with children and guiding them. It gives great insight into teamwork, loyalty and perseverance in all walks of life.
    You don't have to know baseball to benefit from this book's teaching. Although it is about the game, it is more about learning to be a whole person - in intellect, emotions, socially and spiritually.
    I purchased this book for myself then I bought more copies to give to my sons-in-law and nephews. This is a keeper.
