Reviews - What do customers think about Be the Best You Can Be?

A true sports hero with a good message  Nov 14, 2006
I'm a Minnesota girl (well, I think of myself as a girl) and as a Minnesota resident comes our history with our professional sports teams. The Minnesota Twins and Kirby Puckett are a part of our history. And Minnesota residents loved Kirby Puckett.

Kirby Puckett: Be the Best You Can Be is Kirby's story from childhood to his illustrious career as a centerfielder for the Minnesota Twins. But it's more than his life story. It's about believing in yourself, never giving up, accepting who you are and working hard for what you want. What a powerful message!

Also included are the highlights of Kirby's baseball career and messages of hope for kids. He talks about helping others, believing in yourself, mistakes, education, fun, saying no to drugs, etc.

Kirby recently died. What I carry with me when I think about Kirby is his loyalty to the Twins, and all of Minnesota. He could have played for other clubs that would have paid him much more than he made in Minnesota, but he didn't. That's integrity.

The message in Kirby's story is as fresh and valuable as it was when the book was first published in 1993.

Armchair Interviews says: Kirby Puckett: Be the Best You Can Be, is a tribute to a special Minnesota sports hero
