Amazing and inspirational stories from sports The true stories of many sports stars are much like those of any other human being. We all must, at some time or another, work and strive to overcome trouble, problems and hardships. Most of us do so on a smaller stage-no lights, cameras, announcers, or post-game interviews. But there is much we can learn about how to live our own lives by studying the stories of great athletes who have overcome hard times and adversity. -From the Introduction In The Book of Sports Virtues: Portraits from the Field of Play, first-time author Fritz Knapp brings to life the amazing and inspirational stories of some of the greatest athletes ever to grace the baseball diamond, the football gridiron, the tennis court, or the hockey rink. The players in these pages took the hard knocks that life threw at them and faced those adversities with determination (Susan Butcher), appreciation for life's gifts (Lou Gehrig), and integrity (Arthur Ashe). Some of the athletes featured include: Lou Gehrig (Appreciation) Roberto Clemente (Dedication) Amos Alonzo Stagg (Honesty) Eric Liddell (Humility) Gale Sayers and Brian Piccolo (Compassion) Jackie Robinson and Branch Rickey (Nobility) Althea Gibson (Persistence) Ken Venturi (Trust) Albert "Happy" Chandler (Wisdom) Joan Benoit Samuelson and Wilma Rudolph (Strength) Their athletic skills and talents made them good; the way they lived their lives made them great.
