The Baseball Whisperer traces the remarkable story of Merl Eberly and his Clarinda A's baseball team, which he tended over the course of five decades, transforming them from a town team to a collegiate summer league powerhouse. Along with Ozzie Smith, future manager Bud Black, and star player Von Hayes, Merl developed scores of major league players (six of who are currently playing). In the process Merl taught them to be men, insisting on hard work, integrity, and responsibility.
More than a book about ballplayers who landed in the nation's agricultural heartland, The Baseball Whisperer is the story of a coach who puts character and dedication first and reminds us of the best, purest form of baseball excellence.

Baseball purest? Get in here!
Such a phenomenal book with engaging stories about the Eberly family, the town of Clarinda and many baseball names you've heard of and some, you have not. This book resonated with me on multiple levels. While the theme of the book is decidedly baseball oriented, The read offers much more!
