Free read Intentional Walk ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB An inside look at the faith that guides the all starsThe StLouis Cardinals have long been one of the most successful franchises in themajor leagues They have won 11 World Series titles and some of the most famousplayers in the history of the game have worn the storied “Birds on the Bat”uniformWhile thaton field success has been well documented IntentionalWalk is the first book which goes beyond the story of what happens on thefield to take an in depth l. This portrays a baseball team in a totally different light that fans of baseball nonfiction are used to The St Louis Cardinals 2012 team was not a drinking carousing cursing team that seems to be the norm lately If you want that read Jeff Pearlman s The Bad Guys Won the chronicling of the 1986 NY MetsInstead Bob Rains book shows the bonding of the team through the player s faith It s not a religious book the reader isn t bombarded with preaching It details players thoughts as they go through the season and the adversary faced during their careers It provides good insight into the players we as fans see on the field but know little ofFor example I didn t know Matt Holliday had the faith he did I was always mad at him for striking out with the bases loaded or flying out to end a rally Coach Mike Matheny comes across well His patience is shown in the book The downside Rains skirts over so vaguely about David Freese s off field incident in 2009 He makes two references to it but never writes what it is I had to look it up on Google to find it was a DWIThe other thing and it s not Rains fault but the spirit of baseball is shown here Despite faith and love of St Louis several of the players have since been traded including 2011 World Series hero Freese Carlos Beltran did well in St Louis but he s gone Skip Shumaker who developed a fund for a friend s daughter who had a rare disease ended up in California They loved playing in St Louis and with each other but that bonding is now shattered Had nothing to do with the book or faith and I understand the concept of baseball as a business but still I was disappointed in that aspectOverall this is a good book for both hardcore baseball fans as myself and those seeking info into the players faith and inspiration
