I am pleased to announce my children’s book Going Going Gone! is now available at all online bookstores, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Archway Publishing. You can also order a discounted and signed copy at this website Hitting With Torque.
Several years ago, I was invited to write a fun story to teach young softball and baseball players how to hit by a popular hitting website. The article I wrote was titled An Alien Approach To Hitting, which is included in my book Hitting With Torque: For Baseball and Softball Hitters. Going Going Gone! is based on this story.
A Fun Story With Hitting Instruction
Elaine and Ricky and are minding their own business during batting practice at their home field when they are swept up to another world by a strange wind. That’s when their adventure begins.
After landing in the coolest ballpark they have ever seen, Elaine and Ricky discover they are not alone. When a friendly green ballplayer named Sam approaches them holding a glowing bat, they learn he wants them to teach him how to launch a ball into space.
In this fun story with out-of-this-world illustrations, readers will be touched by the relationship that develops between these ballplayers from different worlds. They will also learn the fundamentals of the softball and baseball swing to send balls to the stars until they are Going, Going, Gone!
I have a passion for teaching the fundamentals of hitting in a way that players, parents, and coaches can easily understand. This book is a fun review of my simple and powerful hitting keys that are proven to yield immediate and dramatic results for hitters at every level, even those from other planets!
Remember, always swing for the stars in life!
