Abstract:
Years ago Hank Foiles was a major league catcher. Prior to that, he was an exceptional high school athlete who excelled in baseball, track and football. In his autobiography A Pirates Journey, he retraces his steps from his boyhood to high school and on to professional baseball, where he was eventually named to the National League All-Star team.
Foiles shares stories of long bus rides in the minors, team executives who broke promises and his struggles with injuries. Yet in spite of many disappointing setbacks, he remembers his days in baseball as a dream come true.

  Something for Everyone , 10/22/2011
Reviewer: Susan Pongratz
A PIRATE'S JOURNEY is an engrossing story of transformative diligence, family devotion, a young man's natural athletic gifts, as well as his personal connections that intertwine luck with hard work. This story reminds each of us that we succeed with the help of others, and no really travels alone. The story will inspire and amaze and surprise. I look forward to sharing the book with my friends and students.
