Summary

Hall of Fame, Rod Walters, has enjoyed a wonderful career in sports. As a youth, he knew he wanted to be in the health care industry. During the summer of his ninth grade year, his parents scholarshipped him to the North Carolina All-Star Student Athletic Training Clinic in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The world of Athletic Training and Sports Medicine involves so many facets in health care today to provide the participant a high standard of care. Regardless of the level of work; whether it be the professional football arena, big-time college athletics, the highly competitive mid-levels of the NCAA, high school football under the Friday Night Lights, or the outreach role from a Physical Therapy clinic; Athletic Trainers all strive to provide their patients service through the prevention, care, and rehabilitation of sports injuries.

    Perhaps the best undefeated team in the history of college football—Unbeatable presents the dramatic true story of the 1988 Notre Dame Fighting Irish and their incredible unbeaten season.Unbeatable is the first book to tell the complete story of the incredible 1988 season that brought the fledgling Fighting Irish back to the top of college sports in what many consider to be the greatest unbeaten season of college football ever played. With a completely unlikely but forever memorable cast of characters—including the slight, lisping coach Lou Holtz; the star quarterback, Tony Rice; five foot nothing Asian kicker, Reggie Ho; NFL-bound Ricky Watters; and a crazed and ferocious defensive line, among others—Notre Dame whipped millions of fans into a frenzy. This roller coaster season of football includes the infamous Catholics vs. Convicts game (Notre Dame vs. Jimmy Johnson's #1 ranked Miami Hurricanes). The two teams were undefeated when they met at Notre Dame Stadium, with the Irish winning in the final seconds by a final score of 31-30.With original reporting and interviews with everyone from the players to the coaches, detailed research, and access to the Notre Dame archives, Jerry Barca tells a gripping story of an unbelievable season and the players who would become legends. More than a Notre Dame book, Unbeatable is a compelling narrative of one of the most incredible sports stories of the last century—the unlikely tale of an underdog team coming together and making history.

    The acclaimed biographer offers a social history of the poem that helped America fall in love with baseball—a lively story that “hits it out of the park” (The Baltimore Sun).    The sport that came to be known as America’s Pastime was still in its infancy when a journalist for the San Francisco Examiner wrote a ballad extolling the drama and excitement of the game. Ernest L. Thayer’s Casey at the Bat made its first appearance in the Examiner on June 3, 1888. But the immortal tale of Mighty Casey was destined to become an American phenomenon when star of the New York stage DeWolf Hopper first read it to a rapt audience at Wallack’s Theater later that year.   For the first time, John Evangelist Walsh tells the story behind the poem and its young journalist author, its unlikely journey from California to New York, and the wave of baseball mania that made it one of the most famous poems in the country. The Night Casey was Born is a portrait of America in the earliest years of its love affair with baseball.

    This baseball classic that Ernest Hemingway called "beautifully observed and incredibly conceived" includes a foreword from Jane Leavy and never-before-seen content from the Plimpton archives. The first of Plimpton's remarkable forays into participatory journalism, Out of My League chronicles with wit, charm, and grace what happens when a self-professed amateur has the chance to answer every fan's question: could he strike out a major league star?   Plimpton's inspired idea -- to get on the mound and pitch a few innings to the All-Stars of the American and National Leagues -- begins as a fun-filled stunt and comes to a deeply hellish, nearly humiliating end. This honest and hilarious tale features Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Whitey Ford, Ralph Houk, and other baseball greats and is "a baseball book such as no one else ever wrote, and one of the best ever."-New York Herald Tribune
