About the Book

In 61 Humorous & Inspiring Lessons I Learned From Baseball, Howard Kellman takes you on the playing fields and in the clubhouses of professional baseball.

Howard has broadcast Triple-A Baseball in Indianapolis for 34 years and brings an insider's perspective.

Roger Maris belted a record setting 61 home runs in 1961. Howard wrote 61 Lessons to honor Roger's accomplishment. The Lessons are about Hall of Famers, All-Stars, Minor League players, coaches, managers and umpires. Some Lessons involve tongue-in-cheek humor; many are there to inspire.

There are examples of managers and coaches helping players achieve greatness. One Lesson features a Hall of Fame player in a confrontation with a very famous gangster. Another Lesson tells the story of how a dog helped a World Series MVP settle a salary dispute with his team's owner.

All of the Lessons involve games that Howard has seen, people he has known and stories he has been told in his years as a baseball broadcaster.
