& Taylor

Being a professional baseball player is no walk in the park—it's a physically and mentally demanding job. When you're on the field, millions of people are expecting you to record base hits as a batter or strikeouts as a pitcher. And the work continues beyond game time; you need to practice, work out, and scout your competition. Aches and pains are a given. And on top of everything else, you must perform amidst constant travel, media attention, and high expectations. Baseball has been America's pastime for more than a century. And for those who uphold the tradition in the major leagues today, there's nothing else like it.

This book, which was reviewed by 12-year Major League Baseball (MLB) veteran and World Series champion Gabe Kapler, offers an authentic look at what life is like as a pro baseball player. You'll learn:

• What kinds of skills it takes to play in the major leagues

• What daily life is like for an MLB player

• How MLB players prevent and treat injuries

Go behind the scenes and see what it's really like to be an MLB star!
