COACH: Lessons on the Game of Life – There was a turning point in Michael Lewis’s life, during a baseball game when he was fourteen years old. Coach Fitz put the ball in his hand with the game on the line and managed to convey such confident trust in Lewis’s ability that the boy had no choice but to live up to it.

The coach’s message was not simply about winning, but about self-respect, sacrifice, courage, and endurance. Thirty years later, Lewis still finds himself trying to measure up to what Coach Fitz expected of him.
