Courage to Win

Front Cover
Strategic Book Publishing, 2010 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 94 pages
"Sometimes in life you happen upon the perfect fit and you feel like you can achieve anything. I was fortunate enough to find second base where my baseball glove gets down in the dirt, snaps up the groundballs and I throw the batter out at first base. I find power in a simple swing, seeing the ball as it approaches and connecting in that moment, sending the ball into the outfield. I have found a second home where teammates accept me and we cheer each other on when the odds are against us." -Andrew Sutherland Andrew Sutherland is a quiet boy, however, what you see is far from what you get with him. Baseball brings out the best in him and his success in America's favorite pastime helps him succeed in many other aspects of his life. Through his experiences with baseball, Andrew develops a mental toughness and heart that will not allow him to quit and that gives him the courage to win.

About the author (2010)

Steven Sutherland is in the paper industry and owns his own Internet business based out of his home in Palatine, Illinois. His inspiration for his writing comes mostly from his family, including his first published work, Still He Walks, about his grandfather. His admiration for his son's accomplishments in both baseball and the rest of his life prompted the story of Courage to Win. Sutherland is also working on a book inspired by his grandfather and another about his daughter, Hannah.
