One of the genuinely nicest athletes to ever play baseball shares what he knows about the game and about living a moral and disciplined life. Baseball is the most interpersonally and spiritually complex of all team sports, and Hershiser's story is a testament to what a character-building experience the game can be when approached it with moral discipline. He's such a nice guy that some jocks will wish for a few Wade Boggs or Darryl Strawberry stories--something more racy. But his nine principles and his stories about pitching in the Bigs are so rich with lessons that you settle into the lack of excitement and just enjoy taking it in. T.W.
