[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.

<h1>Why is "Walk the Winning Ways of Golfing's Greatest" different from other golf books?</h1><h2>It’s a treasury of what motivated and inspired the best players in golf and how you will learn from them.</h2><h2>We contacted the very best in golf like, Greg Norman, and others asking  what advice they had for young players.</h2><h2>Greg Norman responded, "My goal was always to be the best I could be. If you think about it...being the best you can be is infinite. There's always room to grow. There's always something new to learn. And there's always something new to do."</h2><h2>Jordan Spieth said, “There's nobody that had more influence on my golf game than Tiger. When I was 11 years old, I watched Tiger hole out that amazing birdie chip in on the 16th hole at Augusta in 2005.  That chip made me want to literally walk outside and for hours on end practice chipping.”<br /></h2><h2>You don’t need to spend a lot of time searching for how the best in golf got to where they are. It’s all here in this book.  You will be inspired.</h2><h2>You will learn things other young golfers will never know.<br /></h2><h2>Ray Floyd replied, “My advice to any young golfer who wants to excel at the sport is to dedicate yourself to being good in all aspects of the game…. The real scoring part takes place from 60 yards in, so I would encourage youngsters to spend as much time learning how to chip and putt as they do with their driving.”</h2><h2>Peter Jacobsen said, ““My father taught me the game and he always stressed the fun of playing and being with my friends and family on the course.... Golf taught me self-reliance, taking responsibility and honesty.”</h2><h2>Tiger Woods said, Tiger said, “People don't understand that when I grew up, I was never the most talented. I was never the biggest. I was never the fastest. I certainly was never the strongest.  The only thing I had was my work ethic…. That’s why I’ve busted my butt on the range for hours on end and made changes to get to this point where I’m able to compete at the highest level in major championships. That’s where you want to be.”</h2><h2>You will learn how the pros maintained a good confidence level. Jack Nicklaus said, “Confidence is the most important single factor in this game, and no matter how great your natural talent, there is only one way to obtain and sustain it: hard work.”  <br /></h2><h2>170 pages of motivational stories and quotes from golf’s greatest you can pick up anytime your confidence level is low. </h2><h2>Review:</h2><h2>“Five Stars. An Enlightening Read.” Walk the Winning Ways of Golf's Greatest is a wonderful collection of interviews and quotes from the world's top golfers. The advice these top golfers give applies not only to golf but to life itself. Even if you don't play golf, you will learn a great deal from these amazing sports people. It's all about setting goals in whatever you do in life and having confidence, doing the hard yards, believing in yourself, and never giving up. Best quotes: 'Telling me I can't do something is the worst you can say to me, because I'll definitely do it. I'm very determined.' - Dustin Johnston. I'll keep on diving back into this book to reread some of these amazing quotes and advice from the world's best golfers. Enlightening! A highly recommended read!"</h2><h2>Another review: "It’s for young golfers who want to make the high school golf team or get that college scholarship."</h2><h2>There is a full color edition of the paperback edition of this book which makes a nicer gift at > https://www.amazon.com/dp/1545450773</h2><h1>SCROLL UP and get this book, and go on through life's journey knowing exactly how the greats did it! </h1>
