Courage to Win By Steven Sutherland
Success in Baseball Helps Player Achieve in Many Other Areas of His Life
Through baseball, Andrew develops a mental toughness and committed heart that will not allow him to quit. His strength, passion, and dedication give him the courage to win.
In Courage to Win, author Steven Sutherland shares lessons he has learned from his baseball-playing son, a quiet boy with remarkable inner depth. Son Andrew has found a home in baseball. You will be captivated as the author describes Andrew’s moving philosophy: “Sometimes in life you happen upon the perfect fit, and you feel like you can achieve anything.” For Andrew, a second baseman, that “fit” means getting his glove down in the dirt, snapping up ground balls, and throwing the batter out at first. You will be touched as the author describes Andrew’s second family, a group of teammates who accept each other and cheer each other on. Courage to Win is a riveting and inspiring story of America’s favorite pastime and the people who love it. It teaches us not to judge a humble boy by his exterior cover but, instead, to look to his gifts, his heart, and his “courage to win.”
