Every baseball player, coach and fan should know the rules of their beloved game, but there's just one problem, the rule book is an intolerable read that often raises as many questions as it answers. As a student of the game, and more recently an official, Jim set out to reconstruct the rules of baseball and explain the theory behind them in a logical and fun way, as the game unfolds, illustrated with history, game situations and personal observations. If that makes you think "I get it, baseball for dum-dums", you couldn't be more wrong. An ode to the national pastime that armchair enthusiasts will enjoy, it's also written to educate and entertain the many players, coaches, parents and officials involved in the serious, and sometimes not-so-serious business of amateur baseball in America. From little league on up to the majors, the game remains the same. Baseball endures, and the rules abide!
This book can improve every aspect of your life, from Health, Fitness, Wellbeing through to refining your Martial Arts techniques
What I've discovered has not only changed me but also how I see and interact with the world. I've realised that most people live in a state of tensed readiness waiting to react to what ever gets thrown at us. This can be very limiting and over a period of time damaging to our mind, body and spirit. I've changed my thinking and have found a more efficient way to coexist with myself and with my environment.
I've written this book in two volumes to clarify how simple adjustments can improve your daily life. Many principles are the same for martial arts, fitness and general wellbeing, but they have different applications. They are individually different but also overlap as the same, without defined boundaries, they have opposites that come together as one.
With the brilliant leadership of the 26 year old Ferenc Puskas, Hungary had slaughtered England 6-3 in November 1953 at the height of the Cold War. Khrushchev (Soviet chief in Moscow) celebrated the victory with champagne. Hungary was the first foreign team to inflict defeat on England at Wembley in front of 110,000 appreciative fans. The legendary Hungarian Golden Team dominated world football (soccer) from 1950 to 1956; beating England, Brazil & Uruguay among others. Its story is told in interviews, analysis, and 120 photos - including the 17 year-old Pele with Puskas in Brazil.

This is not a story about cutting off body parts to survive, or going to brink of existence in an unforeseen twist of fate. This is an adventure born from watching old movies and programs of people living and travelling in the Alaskan/Canadian wilderness. It is a story of a solo quest to get to Alaska by kayak with very little experience, surviving in the wilderness along the way; it's a story of learning to believe in yourself when some others think you're crazy, of putting one foot in front of the other each day, and of trusting your wits to get you out of a situation if it all goes wrong. Some describe it as crazy, some say it's a spirit quest. All I know is that I needed to do it, so I did.

During the 2013-14 season Anthony Higgins followed fan owned club CAP Ciudad de Murcia, in the fifth tier of Spanish football. Tired of the excesses of the modern game and in an attempt to rediscover his mojo for the sport, the author goes on the road visiting every corner of the Spanish Region of Murcia and beyond. On his travels he discovers the club's links with other fan groups throughout Spain and further afield which then takes him on journeys to places as diverse as Bilbao and Gibraltar.
En-route he pays a different kind of visit to some of Spain's hidden pearls. This is a highly personal account of one person's relationship with a country, its people, its history and ultimately its alternative football scene.
The book combines the pleasures of travel writing with a profound scrutiny of Spanish life seen through the eyes of an exile from Tyneside and of course it's all played out to a backdrop of football.

Today only, get this incredibly useful guide for only $2.99. Regularly priced at $4.99. Read on your PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or Kindle device.
Golf is unique in that it is a solitary sport. In competitive golf, another player's performance will have absolutely no effect on your performance and vice versa. In even the most elite of high-profile golf competitions, all golfers are ultimately competing against no one other than themselves. This is why it's important, as you learn and grow in the game, to play within your own capability. One of the most frequent and preventable mistakes that golfers make at every skill level is attempting to emulate or keep up with their peers. If you're just beginning to play, don't expect (or try) to become a golf pro overnight. Instead, just focus on accepting your game for what it is and gradually steering yourself towards excellence. ...
There does not seem to be a predominant amount of respect for the Lord in these current times in which we live. Let's face it -- it's a chaotic world out there, is it not? I would blame most of that on a lack of both teaching and understanding regarding the Creator of the world. However, the existence of God can be clearly seen through the things He has made, which things are quite obvious all around us Yet, it appears that many are not really looking. Why is that, I wonder?
It is written that a fear (respect) of the Lord is truly the beginning of knowledge (Proverbs 1:7). Here, Solomon is clearly teaching that belief in God is the necessary prelude to the understanding of solid truth and the acquisition of any knowledge. Beginning is literally first in order of importance; the first principle. In many Biblical passages the fear (respect) of the Lord is to be taught and learned. The beginning (foundation) of all true knowledge is grounded in this respect.
The purpose of this ...

In the present book I have tried by means of diaries and memory to go back to the vivid impressions of my first year among the Eskimos for the story of what I saw and heard. I have tried to tell the story as I would have told it then, except that the mature knowledge of ten succeeding years has been used to eliminate early faults of observation and conclusion.
A good many interesting stories found in the diaries of my first arctic voyage do not appear in this book because I now know them to have been based on misapprehensions. In a sense, the book is therefore less interesting than if I had published it fourteen years ago -- but less interesting only to the extent in which it is more true.

Blocked is a New Adult sports romance.
College freshman Lucia Ramirez has a secret crush on Dane Monroe. He's a tall drink of water -- blond, brash, and one hell of a volleyball player. ¡Híjole! Lucia hopes her volleyball scholarship to his school will make him notice her.
Too bad what's noticeable is Dane's obvious hatred for Lucia. Her family's politics contradict everything he stands for. And politics are front and center in both their families. Dane's mother is about to face Lucia's father in the race for US President.
When Secret Service throws them together, Dane can't deny his frustrating attraction to Lucia's athletic curves and sweet faith in the world. Amid the intense pressure of college athletics and presidential politics, can opposites not just attract, but overcome overwhelming odds to be together? Or do their differences block their match from the start?
Join Stopwatch, an inexperienced thru-hiker with a steep learning curve, as she tackles her first long-distance hike, the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail, over 2600 miles from Mexico to Canada. She begins the trail with the sole purpose of getting to Canada and quickly realizes she has a lot to learn not only about backpacking, but more importantly, about herself.
Much more than an account of meals, miles and mammals, this book takes key aspects from life on the trail and relates them to how they impact her on a deeper level through valuable lessons learned while traveling one of America's most beautiful and rugged hiking trails. From the simple lessons regarding the importance of food and water to the deeper questions about personal fulfillment and happiness, Stopwatch covers the gamut, sharing the trail experience with all its joys and challenges.
This book is for those who enjoy and appreciate challenging, life-altering experiences. Even if you never step foot on the trail, ...
They call it "The Greatest Sport on Earth" for a reason.
It just took me 26 years to figure out why.
If you live long enough, life will throw you to your back.
And when it does, you're much better off if you've wrestled.
You learn later in life how vital the disciplines of wrestling are, especially against a seemingly insurmountable opponent in a disease or illness.
Twenty-six years ago, my goal and mission in life was to win a New York State Wrestling Championship.
I committed myself to a lifestyle and made the sacrifices.
I put in the time. I had the hunger, the desire, and the determination, but I came up short.
For many years after I graduated it seemed like I got nothing out of my six years of total dedication to the sport; that the trade-off of what I gave and what I got in return to this sport was way out of whack.
I hated wrestling for it.
Until I had adversity in my life.
And slowly but surely, I started realizing how much the sport of wrestling has given ...
Graduating from Harvard in 1834, Richard Henry Dana, Jr. enlisted as a common sailor on a voyage around Cape Horn on the brig Pilgrim. He returned to Massachusetts two years later aboard the Alert (which left California sooner than the Pilgrim). He kept a diary throughout his sea adventures, and, after returning home, he penned what has been widely recognized as an American classic, Two Years Before the Mast, first published in 1840, the same year of his admission to the bar.
