It is about reaching for goals you thought were impossible and getting the most out of life every day.

Throughout his life, author Larry W. Lawson has been passionate about baseball. From playing on his neighbor’s field as a child to coaching high school and little league girls’ softball teams, Lawson has inspired other children to try their best and reach for the stars. In his new book, “The Wish” (published by AuthorHouse), Lawson teaches a new generation of readers about the power of perseverance and the love of family.

“The story is about going above and beyond your physical abilities,” writes Lawson. “It is about reaching for goals you thought were impossible and getting the most out of life every day.”

“The Wish” follows a family of three brothers who share a love of baseball and an old man seeking a second chance at redemption. With a little bit of magic, the brothers and the old man receive a new outlook on life and are inspired to do their personal best whether they win or lose.

An excerpt from “The Wish”:

“Yep, things are pretty neat around here, but my favorite place is the old ball stadium. It’s not like the fancy stadiums nowadays. It starts just beyond first base, circling home plate, and goes just beyond third base. It’s made mostly of oak and hickory boards as wide as home plate. It’s about fifteen or twenty rows of seats reaching up toward the sky with a tin roof stretching out over the crowd to keep the sun off.”
