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.

"Poland has hit a grand slam. In 'Steal Away' he gives his readers an interesting, well-presented combination--"the Bible and Baseball."
