"If you want great advice about living...you've come to the right place."
-from the foreword by Tommy Lasorda
"BASEBALL WAS GREAT SPRING TRAINING FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.",
In the history of professional sports, few athletes have been more admired and respected than Orel Hershiser. But in a career marked by a Cy Young award, MVP of division--and World Series-winning teams, a Sports Illustrated "Sportsman of the Year" award, and a record fifty-nine consecutive shutout innings, Hershiser's greatest achievement was learning how to live with integrity, purpose, and joy. Now he shares the secrets of that success in an inspirational look at games won and lost and lessons learned along the way. Warm, funny, and filled with unforgettable on-the-field anecdotes and stories, here is one man's guide to some enduring principles of success, including:
Believe Your Coach. Find someone who has already been where you want to go.
Anything Can Happen. You can't control some things that happen to you, but you can control how you respond.
Lighten Up. Life is serious enough. Laughter is a key ingredient in winning.
Live with Gratitude. Do your best to be known as a person with a thankful heart.
