Provides a blueprint for becoming a champion, both on and off the field When Dayton Moore arrived in Kansas City in 2006, the Royals hardly resembled a contender. The general manager inherited a major league club that had just one winning season in the previous decade. Moore, a Kansas native who grew up as a Royals fan, implemented a plan to return the franchise to its glory years. Though not without a few bumps in the road, that plan came to fruition in 2014 as the Royals swept through the American League playoffs to take the pennant and returned the World Series to Kansas City. In More Than a Season, Moore shares how his faith and leadership principles guided his rebooting of the Royals. The general manager describes how he built one of baseball's best farm systems and international scouting departments of out nothing. He shares insight on how he persevered through six consecutive losing seasons and the critical response to controversial trades of Zack Greinke and Wil Myers—transactions that ultimately yielded the foundation of a champion. Full of never-before-told stories from inside the Royals organization More Than a Season features a foreword by star outfielder Alex Gordon and an introduction by William F. High, CEO of the National Christian Foundation Heartland.

Winner of the 2011 Seymour Medal from the Society for American Baseball Research, for the best book of baseball history or biography "An irresistible look back on Fenway Park's first season, not just for Sox fans . . . a great choice for anyone who enjoys a dip into baseball history at its best."—Huffington Post Even people who aren’t fans of baseball know Fenway Park. More than just a ballpark, it is a part of American culture, and has been for nearly one hundred years. In Fenway 1912, Glenn Stout tells the remarkable story of Fenway’s first year, from the long winter when locals poured concrete and built the park to the ragtag Red Sox team that embarked on a journey to the World Series while the paint was still drying and the grass still coming in. Stout tells the stories behind the park’s notorious quirks like the Green Monster, and of the designers, builders, managers, and players who made Fenway’s first year unforgettable. For all that has been written in tribute to the great Fenway Park, no one has ever really told the behind-the-scenes true story. Drawing on extensive new research, the esteemed baseball historian Glenn Stout delivers an extraordinary tale of innovation, desperation, and perspiration—capturing Fenway as never before. "Fenway 1912 reads like a novel, detailing the trials and tribulations of the quaint ballpark and the team itself … Stout has made a great story out of history.”—Baseball America "Stout's vivid writing and extraordinary research make the journey worthwhile in so many ways . . . you will likely feel as if you were in the creaky grandstand yourself."—Boston Globe

"So I was sitting there in the car, and I did what you might do a few times a day-scratched a little itch on the left side of my face. But this time I felt something under the surface of the skin, a small lump. In other circumstances, I wouldn't have thought anything of it. I had led a remarkably healthy life, and seldom thought about health issues. But this time I did, and it was the discovery of the bump on the left side of my face that ignited the process which led to my odyssey." Kansas City sportscaster Danny Clinkscale tells the story of a year in his life that combines discovery, surgery, and treatment of cancer, covering two World Series, and embarking on a solo trip through the upper Midwest. It was, simply, a journey at the conclusion of a journey. In Leaving Cancer for the Circus, Clinkscale takes the reader through the struggles of his radiation treatment, its side effects, and the changes it made to his life. Throughout the ordeal, Clinkscale worked on-air, and it was during this time that he conceptualized his plan and goal of taking a trip after his health began to normalize. The solo trip is the heart of the story-tales of small towns, beautiful vistas, and the unique people and places he encountered on the way. Woven into the narrative are reminiscences of a long career in broadcasting, as well as biographical chapters highlighting important events that shaped his full life, a life forever altered by cancer. Despite the serious nature of the inspiration for the story, Leaving Cancer is mostly an upbeat and sometimes humorous account of many places and times. It is also, at its heart, a love story, detailing the author's faith that his wife would understand his whimsy.
