This book will be in high demand among my baseball players. It presents interesting facts and statistics in short, captivating chapters.

Where I come from, no one dreams of becoming an author.

I didnt know any famous African American male authors. I didnt actually meet one until I attended college. I wanted to be a football player, the next Sean Combs, or a rapper; anything that would instantly provide me with the riches I would need to move my mama off of the block.
