The inspirational stories of Babe Ruth, Jim Peirsall, Torii Hunter, Ron LaFlore, and Joe Torre, five men who overcame difficult childhoods to play the game they loved--baseball.

Praise for Good Sports:
“Never patronizing, [Stout] captures both grit and glory.” —Kirkus Reviews

Many of the baseball greats overcame huge challenges to be sports heroes—here are five inspiring stories of men who did just that. Baseball is considered America’s pastime, but not all players grew up living the American dream. Babe Ruth, Jim Peirsall, Torii Hunter, Ron LeFlore, and Joe Torre sure didn’t. Poverty, abuse, and addiction are a few of the issues they had to deal with as kids, but they turned their lives around to play the game they loved.
