On July 22, 2007, during a sweltering summer evening in Little Rock, Arkansas, career minor league baseball player, Tino Sanchez lined a seemingly ordinary foul ball down the first base line. Somehow the ball found its way to the back of the neck of first-base coach Mike Coolbaugh - who was struck dead almost instantly, bringing the game to an immediate halt and forever changing the lives of the players, coaches and fans in attendance. Heart of the Game is an ultimately uplifting, triumphant celebration of Mike Coolbaugh's life, a story of hope, failure, resiliency, tragedy and forgiveness that remain his legacy - and the same small-town values that make up the core of baseball itself. S. L. Price is a senior writer at Sports Illustrated. Price has written two previous books: Pitching Around Fidel, which was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and Far Afield, which was named one of the five best reads of 2007 by Esquire magazine. He lives in Washington, D.C. with his family. (booksense)
