From Hardships to Championships, by Glenn Stout

From Hardships to ChampionshipsGood Sports series
Summary:  Baseball is a great sport, but not all players had the home life as kids that nurtured their talent. Babe Ruth, Jim Peirsall, Torii Hunter, Ron LeFlore, and Joe Torre dealt with poverty, abuse, and addiction when young, and had to turn their lives around to play the game they loved. A moving look at the lives of these four great players.

  1. Very detailed book about sports. As a baseball player myself, I really appreciated learning about how famous baseball players like Ruth got through their slumps and hard times. In almost every chapter there were new facts and more things to learn. This book would be most appropriate for 4-6th graders.
