It’s time to swing for the fences and realize outcomes you never thought possible! How does a person measure success? Baseball players, for instance, can fail seven out of ten times at the plate and go to the Baseball Hall of Fame. And yet people act as though they need to bat 1.000.
From children's author Greg Bancroft comes Swing for the Fences, a book where he draws on lessons from America’s greatest pastime to create a manual of practical tools for winning at the game of life. Navigating life’s challenges is never easy, but Bancroft’s thoughtful and humorous writing will teach readers how to give themselves a break, and as a result, “suck less.” In a clear, engaging style, Swing for the Fences guides readers through being successful at home, at work, and in relationships. In the end, it’s not just about the home runs; it’s about how a person approaches stepping up to the plate.
Greg Bancroft is the author of Betsy's Day at the Game, published in 2013. Greg’s love for baseball was forged during the summertime pickup games of his youth. He is joined in the mythology, spirituality, and emotional journeys of our national pastime by family and friends across the continent. Portions of the proceeds will support youth baseball and softball.
