Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0970361173, Paperback)

His dream was to play major league baseball and he came this close to fulfilling that dream. Was it part of a greater plan? Had he not taken his parents' advice that he earn a college degree, Jesse White may well have played on baseball’s grandest stage. That he didn’t is probably the reason thousands of young people beat the odds that stack against inner city youth in today’s American society. Clearly, baseball’s loss was their salvation. They Call Heroes Mister: The Jesse White Story, is a book about sacrifice, discipline and sports. It also is a story that includes political intrigue and heartbreak. Most of all, it is a story of redemption and how some people, despite the odds, can succeed in a hard and cold world. In age when despair and disappointment too often outstrip hope and triumph, Jesse White is an inspiration to young and old alike. His story will inspire everyone who reads They Call Heroes Mister: The Jesse White Story.
