Joe Sperle’s book can be used by all as a roadmap of success as well as being a champion. You need to define success for yourself. It is money, fame or making a difference in the world by helping people. A champion is someone who we fight and speak for another person who cannot do it for themselves. It can also be someone who is better than others in a sport or skill. Joe has used his tragedies and turned them into triumphs. You will see many of Joe's attributes (teacher, leader, communicator, problem solver, motivator and competitor ) in this book that Joe has used to ( most importantly ) HELP OTHERS!

In sports we are continually talking about “difference makers”. People who can change the way a game is played. I believe Joe Sperle has done that in many athletes’ lives and is a professional sports trailblazer! He has helped so many youths and young men reach their potential through his coaching and professional baseball opportunities the last 30 years!

Too often much is lost in the effort to succeed. Too often potential is lost when a player is not guided correctly or coached intelligently.
