Publishers Description
Hugh Poland blends America's greatest pastime with America's greatest strength--"its spirituality. With grace and passion, Hugh shines light on the real soul of baseball by providing testimonies of its soldiers of the game. Drawing upon stories from current and former players and managers, including the famous and the unsung heroes, the author shares life's important lessons. Pee Wee Reese's stand for fair treatment of African American players before it was popular to do so offers a biblical look at justice and encouragement. Harvey Haddix's 1959 twelve-inning perfect game becomes an opportunity to examine perfection from God's point of view. Jesus' unwillingness to give up on Zacchaeus is compared to a scout's unwillingness to give up on a questionable prospect who went on to become baseball's home run king: Hank Aaron.

This little book is so special....especially when it has our friend, Pete Runnels in it! It's a wonderful way to start your day even if you're not a baseball fan!
Highly recommended reading for all Christian baseball fans  Jun 7, 2006
Steal Away: Devotions For Baseball Fans by Hugh Poland is a unique and remarkable collection of baseball feats and facts with a deftly intertwined understanding of Jesus and the scriptures. Introducing readers to an interwoven interpretation of America's favorite game and the basic tenants of Christianity, Steal Away provides readers with an uncompromising wisdom of the baseball's spiritual implications and reveals biblical lessons taught by both the ball game and sacred scriptures. Thoughtful and thought-provoking, Steal Away is very highly recommended reading for all Christian baseball fans.
Great for baseball fans!  Jun 2, 2006
I like the way the author takes scripture and puts it into everyday living in the life of baseball players. I enjoy reading about players that you never thought they were Christians and how the game of baseball has impacted their lives. Also how they are able to share their beliefs with anyone they come in contact with. It also shows you that just because they are a professional baseball player, they are human and they make mistakes. The author did a good job on interveiwing these players and getting their stories. It is a very interesting devotional and I would incourage anyone to read it.
