“Last year I enrolled at ESM after wrestling certifications so I couldn’t wrestle during the season, but I still went to every practice.”<br />I asked him, “What do you mean you went to every practice?<br />Why would you attend practice if you knew you couldn’t wrestle in the season?”<br />His answer floored me.<br />He said, “Because for the first time in my life I knew what it was like to be part of a family. My wrestling coaches and teammates make me feel part of something. They were there for me. When they found out about my situation, they raised money for me through a tournament – and they never told anyone. I would do anything for them.”<br />He went on to share with me that his goal is to ‘just win 1 match in his high school wrestling career.”<br />Now, to you and I, that goal sounds like it comes from an underachiever – but if you ever knew his circumstances, you would understand how overachieving and insurmountable “just 1 win” seems to him.<br />******<br />Just 1 Win is part of “The Wrestling Singles Series.”<br />Each single is designed to capture the people and culture of the greatest sport on earth.<br />The sport of wrestling.<br />Each single in the series is written true to length, always under 20 pages.<br />These singles are purposefully designed to be written short, concise and powerful.<br />Each single can also be found in the book “Wrestling Writing”<br />I hope you enjoy each story as much as I have enjoyed living them.<br />JohnA Passaro

[Article] The summer of 1981 was indeed a fateful one for several young men who played collegiate summer ball in the Valley Baseball League (VBL) in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. For a trio of players on the New Market Rebels, it was the beginning of a journey that would see them enjoy lengthy major league careers. For three players on the Winchester Royals, Fate had seemingly propped open the door to legitimate dreams of future seasons in the big league sun as well, but 1981 would be the pinnacle of their baseball glory. It was a summer in which the team with Dennis Clow and Steve Peruso and Clay Daniel bested the team with Tom Browning and John Kruk and Dan Pasqua. Clow, Peruso, and Daniel together totaled 11 minor league seasons. Browning, Kruk, and Pasqua each played in the majors for 10 years or more.<br /><br />Few would have predicted the degree of big league success for the Rebel trio. Browning was almost not allowed to return to the team, Pasqua was briefly dismissed from the team, and John Kruk, well "Johnny" did not fare well when he came up against a broom-stick wielding grandma after he accidentally spit tobacco juice on her carpet.<br /><br />It was the Winchester Royals, founded by Keith Lupton who would go on to be named the executive of the year three times in three different minor leagues, who were the superior team. Their determination, their ability to stage improbable comebacks, and most of all their talent made the 1981 Winchester Royals one of the great summer league teams ever assembled.<br /><br />Set as it was against the backdrop of the 1981 major league players’ strike, the story of the battle for the President’s Cup between the Rebels and the Royals epitomizes that mix of glory and poignancy that produces such passion in those who love the game.<br /><br />An inspiring and easy read at only 7,000 words.

Che cosa spinge una ragazza di Rimini a tuffarsi nel Mar Tirreno a 107 mt. di profondità, trattenendo il respiro, trascinata verso il fondo da una zavorra? Il record del mondo Angela Bandini lo ha fatto semplicemente perché aveva la certezza di saperlo fare. Non è stata, quindi, una sfida al mare e nemmeno una sfida alle proprie capacità, ma per un qualcosa che va oltre… e se – come ha dichiarato – il record è stato una passeggiata, ancor prima l’impegno con se stessa l’ha vista protagonista di un altro record raggiunto con un tuffo, forse ancora più profondo, nel blu della sua anima.<br />Angela degli Abissi è un romanzo verità. Descrive dieci anni di vita di Angela Bandini, dall’incontro nel 1979 con Leo Amici – il suo maestro – fino al record del mondo nel 1989, i grandi perché della vita, le spinte verso il bene ed il bello, le cadute e le lotte di una grande campionessa. Ne esce un panorama vicino ai pensieri e alle risposte che cercano i giovani quando si immergono nel blu della loro anima.
