Summary
"Third Base for Life "is the first hand account of how an ordinary father who has not played baseball since Little League, manages to put together a group of kids from his son's small religious school and somehow gain admittance into a tournament (and a world) where they simply do not belong. The story spans a year and half of the author's life as he reluctantly gives into his son's wishes and, against his better judgment, organizes a team of Jewish "Bad News Bears." The ragtag group must learn to play baseball, come together as a team, face formidable opponents and deal with tragic illness. Ultimately, as they square off against other teams from across the country whose talent is light-years beyond theirs, the author and the boys learn that losing can bring gifts of its own while finding strength to confront one's fears can be a reward in and of itself
