Few individuals share Brent Loehr's fascinating and diverse perspective on baseball, which includes years as a catcher in competitive leagues, extensive coaching and clinical instruction, study of Canadian baseball fandom, and as an official international ambassador for Major League Baseball.
Brent's unique background enliven and inform the essays in GLOBAL BASEBALL CLASSROOM - from his time leading a baseball clinic for the Inuit, to rubbing elbows with self-exiled wild man Bill Lee, to an encounter with a one-armed pitcher who had never heard of Jim Abbott.
Travel to such faraway places as Germany, Sweden, and Uganda and taste the true international flavor of America's greatest game, and the lessons we can learn from the inspiring stories of others.
Brent also writes extensively about the Canadian baseball culture, where the short season is more than made up for by devoted and passionate fans.
