Baseball, Boys, and Bad Words reveals the hilarity and magic of Little League baseball. Often called “the funniest tale ever told,” this story will have you laughing until you cry, while warming your soul, reminding you of childhood and a simpler time. In 1970, eleven-year-old Andy Andrews and a group of friends began a Little League season they would never forget. All the usual ingredients were there—well-worn gloves, freshly cut grass, and new uniforms. But the addition of a coach who was “new to the area” is what made this season truly unforgettable for young Andy. Baseball fans and both current and former Little Leaguers will love the funny story, the age-old baseball wisdom quoted from some of the game’s greatest players, and the vintage baseball photography.

The Traveler’s Summit explores the historically proven principles that have guided our greatest leaders for centuries, and how we might restore these principles in our own lives…before it’s too late. Dave Ponder is back, and this time, the fate of civilization may be in his hands. Centuries of greed, pride, and hate have sent humankind hurtling toward disaster, far from our original purpose. There is only one solution that can reset the compass and right the ship, and that answer is only two words. With time running out, it’s up to David Ponder and a cast of history’s best and brightest minds to uncover this solution before it is too late. The catch?

This is how it’s done. This is why it’s done this way. This is the result you can expect if you do it. These three pieces of information inform a conclusion about every part of each of our lives. Yet it is these three pieces of information that most often set an insidious trap—a trap that has held the imaginations of generations captive to the belief that because they are doing the best they can do, they are accomplishing the best that can be done. And while each of these three statements are true, not one of them is the truth. Dive deeper with bestselling author Andy Andrews as he shares his unique philosophy regarding foundational thinking. Through his unique and captivating storytelling, Andy helps you search for the reality that lies beyond the boundaries established in the name of “best practices,” “industry standards,” or “the way things are done.” For it’s at the bottom of the pool that you discover a pathway to extraordinary results that most people in your position do not even know are possible.

Lodged in a psychoanalytic sensibility, and drawing from ancient and modern religious and spiritual wisdom, this book provides the details, conceptual structures, and inner meanings of a number of easily accessible, everyday activities, including gardening, sport, drinking coffee, storytelling, and listening to music. It also suggests how to best engage these activities, to consecrate the ordinary in a way that points to experiential transcendence, or what the author calls "glimpsing immortality", a core component of the art of living the "good life".

What sports fans read, watch, and listen to at home often isn’t the real story coming out of the locker room or the front office. George Castle should know: he’s covered baseball in Chicago for decades and witnessed the widening gulf between the media and the teams they’re supposed to cover—and the resulting widespread misinformation about the inner workings of the game. In this book, Castle chronicles from the inside the decline of baseball reporting and shows in clear and practical terms how ill-served today’s sports followers are by those they trust for the straight story. Charting the path of a veteran sports reporter’s career, Baseball and the Media traces the changes in baseball coverage from the days of the old-time players and scribes to the no-holds-barred (and no facts checked) sports-talk radio of our time. Along the way, Castle introduces readers to the politics of baseball media (does sports journalism actually have its red and blue states?), documents the transformation of athletes from role models to sports-media celebrities, including emblematic characters such as LaTroy Hawkins and Carl Everett, and illuminates the profound changes in the way sports in general—and baseball in particular—are conveyed to its avid consumers, who are the losers in the end.

She didnt wait until she was an adult to become her brothers keeper. She started when she was just nine years old. This young girl was destined to be a leader. Little Jake was her neighbor, and because he had polio, and walked different from most twelve year olds, and talked different, some children had the tendency to pick at him in some way. But not when Shelleen was around. One evening she had detention, which meant she had to stay after school for an hour. When she got home her sister told her that Morey had pushed Little Jake down. She went to Jakes house, got him and proceeded to Moreys house. When his Mom answered the door. Shelleen told her she needed to see Morey. His mother asked her the reason. She told her she came to beat his butte for pushing Jake down. Moreys mother, shocked and surprised, said that if he needed punishing she was the one to do it. Shelleen said well go ahead and punish him, because if she didnt she was going to get him going to school tomorrow morning, or at school, or coming home from school tomorrow afternoon. Because Shelleen believed she should look after her neighbors and her friends, she had the reputation of being a troublemaker. Her mother had to constantly visit her school. This went on all through elementary school and into high school. One of her most troubling times in high school was when she got a baseball bat to beat seven guys who had raped five girls in her classroom. In the eleventh grade, Shelleen and her sister Greta coned there way into an adult nightclub. There she met Lou Buckbinder. They fell in love. Hence, began a long love story. She was seventeen, he was twenty-six years old. This would end up being one of the most controversial love stories you have ever read.

While she had a lot of self-control issues, he had friends he was concerned about that had many problems. Johnny his best friend was married to a woman that had turned out to be a drunken alcoholic. David had an ex-girlfriend that was pretending to be pregnant in order to get money from him. His sister-in-law, Shandon was one of the five girls who were raped by seven guys.

She told Lou that they were going to have to put their marriage on hold for a while. She said she had joined the Army Nurses Corps, and had accepted an assignment in Iraq. When Shelleen was sixteen years old, she said that the most important thing in life to her was, what she could do to make life better for all people. That seemed to be the creed she was living by. Lou was devastated. He felt like the whole world was against him. He finally picked himself up, and started planning for his future without the person he loved more than life itself.

Libby Miller is a good Southern girl, and good Southern girls know the rules. But fate has no rules. On her nineteenth wedding anniversary, fate whips up a tornado of turmoil when Libby finds her husband Neil in the arms of his assistant. But the storm’s not over. Neil flips his BMW, and Libby comes home to find his ghost in the dining room. How is Libby supposed to grieve and move on with Neil’s ever-present, meddling ethereal presence in her life? With her twentieth high school reunion looming, Libby finds herself torn between two men from her past. One man promises passion and a new beginning, and the other wants to pick up where they left off. Neil stirs up a maelstrom of mischief, making it almost impossible for Libby to sort through the rubble. Libby anticipates a confrontation between her two suitors–not a shadowy stalker who chooses the reunion as his setting for a showdown. In Libby’s quest for independence, she rejects the one man who can save her. Can she compromise the price of her freedom, or will it cost her a second chance at love and put her life in danger?
