This is book number 3 in the Marcus Stroman series.
In this third and final book in the semi-autobiographical middle grade series from MLB pitcher Marcus Stroman, Marcus continues to learn that sometimes what happens off the field has you looking over your shoulder on the field.
Marcus is used to being taunted and heckled. He’s learned to take deep breaths and manage a lot of bad stuff coming at him. But when one opponent brings up race that’s just not something he can—or will—block out.
About the Author
Marcus Stroman was born and raised in Medford, New York, where he attended Patchogue-Medford High School. Drafted by the Washington Nationals in the eighteenth round of the 2009 Major League Baseball draft, Marcus opted to delay the start of his professional career and instead chose to attend Duke University to further his education. Marcus has pitched for the Toronto Blue Jays and the New York Mets and now plays for the Chicago Cubs. Off the field, Marcus is passionate about his work with the community through his charitable foundation HDMH (Height Doesn’t Measure Heart), where he helps kids achieve their own dreams and to instill confidence in themselves. Through his idea of believing in yourself more than believing in what anyone says about you, Marcus strives to be a positive role model both on and off the field. Marcus has always believed in himself and has proven all his critics wrong at every step of his journey. He is known for his determination not only on the field, but in bettering himself off the field and building his confidence in whatever he sets out to do. He hopes to instill that same confidence in kids.
