In this first book in the semi-autobiographical middle grade series from MLB pitcher Marcus Stroman, a young baseball player learns that perfect games only come with a lot of practice—and some strikeouts.
Everyone is telling Marcus Stroman he will make the elite playing team. They all think he can do it. But what happens when doubt grips Marcus and makes him feel like he might not?
It’s easy to forget that for every professional sports player there was a kid just learning that sport and dealing with nerves and shaky confidence. MLB player Marcus Stroman is one of the few professional athletes to address the need for and importance of mental health, and in this new series, he reaches out to kids with a semi-autobiographical character who deals with doubts, literally learns how to breathe, and does some hard work to dig deep and hear his own voice.
