The day that changed my life forever, my cousin Jason was operating one of those riding lawnmowers, cutting the grass on the hilly terrain at our grandmother’s house. He was at the bottom of a hill, headed up toward the house as my brother Bobby and I continued to run and play. As I ran around the back corner of the house, Jason had already started up the hill with the motor in high gear. Bobby hollered at Jason to stop because he knew I was running around the back of the house.<br /><br />Too late.<br /><br />Before either of us knew it, my right foot was caught under the mower, almost cutting off my right little toe. As I tripped, I held up my left arm to protect my head and that’s when the lawnmower splintered up my left arm at the elbow like a wood splitter. The lawnmower finally stalled but not until the blade severed my arm up to my left shoulder blade bone. I remember waking up in the hospital asking my mom, “Where’s my arm?”<br /><br />I quickly learned that my injury would not and could not stop me from becoming a force to be reckoned with on the softball field as a pitcher, catcher, and outfielder. I eventually earned a spot in the Dixie Hall of Fame. People have said I do not understand the meaning of the word “can’t” and they’re absolutely right! I possess positive purpose and a resolve to conquer any challenge that presents itself.<br /><br />A very special part of my journey has included reaching out to Bethany Hamilton, author of Soul Surfer, who lost her arm in a shark attack off the coast of Kauai, and Heaven Harris, an aspiring young softball player who at fourteen lost her right arm in an ATV accident. After hearing about their accidents, I reached out to both young ladies to encourage them that life was not over; indeed it was only beginning, simply with a new chapter title. Helping Heaven learn how to play softball with one arm has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.<br /><br />This book is about defeat and destiny and hope and tenacity. It’s about realizing all the wonderful things you can do with what you have. The part you are missing in your life can be either external or internal—the secret is to turn your scars into success.

<p><strong>A rousing and empowering story of dedication and overcoming all odds, featuring the tough and unforgettable athletes of the champion Lady Tigers softball team. </strong></p><br /><p>Violence was a way of life for the girls of Mott Middle School in the South Bronx. Some woke up to it at home, and others dodged it on the way to school. Vicious physical fights broke out in classrooms, hallways, and bathrooms. These girls filed their fingernails into sharp points because they had to be ready to go at any time. Then a new coach joined the ranks at Mott Middle, and a new program began: girl's softball.  </p><br /><p>Coach Astacio offers the girls the time and attention they need to take their first steps to success. As they learned to throw, hit and field, they also dealt with the foul balls life threw at them: abuse, fractured homes, and violence wherever they looked. But the biggest challenge they faced was learning to think and act like a team, not just a bunch of fierce girls against each other—and the world. </p><br /><p><em>Lady Tigers in the Concrete Jungle</em> is the incredible true story that captured the hearts of millions when they were invited to appear on Ellen earlier this year.  The Lady Tigers were invited onto the field at Yankee Stadium where the Yankees honored Coach Astacio with “Coach of the Year” at their Hispanic Heritage Month Community Achievement Awards in September 2017. But beyond the headlines, this is a story of a self-selected community coming together with faith, courage, and new-found values to overcome fear, violence, and crippling doubt.</p><br /><p>These girls have ushered in a new confidence and pride not only in themselves, but in their school, the faculty, and their friends. And while not all of them have continued down this new path, many are now the first in their families to go to college and are beginning to see how being a Lady Tiger will always be a part of their lives.</p>
