Joe Nuxhall Miracle League board member Doug Coates recently published a book entitled "Pitching for Success: Character Lessons, The Joe Nuxhall Way"and he has graciously decided to donate part of the profits from his book to the Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields.
Discussing the book, Doug said, "The book attempts to get kids to understand that good character can be the best determinant of popularity and that you can still be 'one of the guys' even if you have to ride the bench once in a while."
If you want a great demonstration of how character can effect a child's popularity you'll want your youngster to read "Pitching for Succcess".

The "May We Help" organization has generously offered to engineer a batting machine for kids and adults with limited range of motion. The machine will allow people to actuate a device that actually bats the baseball.
May We Help is a nonprofit organization in Cincinnati, Ohio that recruits skilled engineers to help develop customized devices to assist people with physical or mental disabilities. These devices help individuals in need to engage and experience a better quality of life.
We can't wait to see what the wonderful engineers and techs at GE come up with and we can't possibly find a way to express our gratitude.
We'll keep you posted as we learn more about this wonderful project's progress.
And the "Trades" people just keep on giving!
Carpenters, electricians, plumbers, tradesmen and women from nearly every trade have been some of the most generous donors of time and effort to The Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields.
That tradition continued when Earl Collins, on the left, and Jeff Francis, on the right, just "stopped by" in mid August to put finishing touches on the fountain and lay up the decorative stone you see on the adjacent walls.
There's no adequate way to thank folks like Earl and Jeff, but from the bottom of our hearts -- Thank You!
