    review The Baseball Whisperer: A Small-Town Coach Who Shaped Big League Dreams Ñ eBook or Kindle ePUB The Baseball Whisperer, A Small, Town Coach Who Shaped Big League DreamsThe Baseball Whisperer is a lovely read mostly about a time and place of the past that echoes today The whisperer is Merl Eberly a baseball student from the time he picked up a bat who takes baseball boys and turns them into baseball men College kids looking for wooden bat experience come to Clarinda Iowa population 5000 They get baseball coaching but life lessons as well and it's the non baseball stuff that stays with them forever Ozzie Smith the Hall of Fame shortstop is Eberly's star pupil but the stories of the non stars and the lessons they learned are just as compelling Tackett gets to know these characters and his descriptions will let you get to know them too
