About The Book

Some of the game’s greats share memories of the love and support that helped them make it to the top.

Baseball Dads is a heartwarming collection of notable major league ballplayers’ favorite baseball-related memories with their fathers and how their relationships shaped them, not only as players, but as the men they are today. From superstars like Josh Hamilton, Chipper Jones, and CC Sabathia to journeyman big leaguers like Adam LaRoche, J. D. Drew, and Jeff Francoeur, this inspiring book reveals, through its fifteen vivid profiles, the profound impact fathers can have on the lives of their children on and off the diamond. An ideal Father’s Day gift, Baseball Dads offers a rare, intimate glimpse into the private lives of some of the game’s best players.
