Baseball is a great sport, but not all players had the kind of home life as kids that nuturted their love and talent for the game. Babe Ruth, Jim Peirsall, Torii Hunter, Ron LaFlore, and Joe Torre sure didn’t. Poverty, abuse, and addiction are a few of the issues they had to deal with as kids. They had to turn their lives around to play the game they loved, and they did just that. An inspirational and moving look at the lives of these four great players.
