Abby Liebing wrote an opinion piece in USA Today on March 27, 2021, about how America needs a comeback after all the problems we faced recently. She proposes baseball as the answer. It is a wonderful piece that has made it’s way to me twice in the last few days. In Ms. Liebing article, “Let baseball lead the way in America’s comeback kid story” she states as her conclusion: “After political strife, economic downfall, and societal upheaval, the U.S. needs a comeback in the worst way.”

We couldn’t agree more, at Sporting Chance Press we “promote the good” in sports.  In fact, a few months ago, we published a book called Baseball’s Winning Ways –how can it fail in 2021? Will it really help America’s comeback? Why not!

Baseball’s Winning Ways is written for enjoyment, inspiration, and information by the author of The 10 Commandments of Baseball, J. D. ThorneBaseball’s Winning Ways examines baseball eras and their backgrounds, along with profiles of great current and past players. The drama of the game, its history, baseball superstitions, statistics, and the story of trading cards are presented clearly for readers from age 12 on up. The central theme of the book is baseball’s principles that are essential to the best baseball programs. The author points out that baseball promotes certain virtues that are so important today. These are the values that parents, grandparents, teachers, and coaches want to pass down to the next generation—as important now as ever.
