Baseball is America’s favorite pastime and one of the best ways for fathers and sons to bond. Major League Dads is an inspirational look at such connections through a collection of heartfelt essays from interviews with 150 of the top players in Major League Baseball, such as David Wright, Carlos Pena, Brad Lidge, and Derek Jeter. Through personal recollections, you can read firsthand what their dads meant to them growing up and how they coached them to success both on and off the field.

Let’s be honest. Your love for baseball was initially fueled by your Dad. For me, I remember picking up a plastic red whiffle ball bat and taking BP with my Dad when I was two years old. From the big red bat to collegiate baseball, my Dad was there every step of the way. Can’t have one without the other. Some of the stories in this book are pretty good. Derek Jeter’s relationship with his father is pretty special. You see Dr. Jeter at Yankee games all the time. Pick this one up today at Barnes & Noble
