Paul Babcock, a teacher, coach, and devoted husband and father, has completed his new book “The Team”: an inspirational book about how the author roamed his family’s property, making up games such as “silo ball,” dreaming of the one great catch that would ensure his team a championship.

According to Babcock, "(I) became a teacher and coach because (I) wanted to make an impact on people like the one Coach Gillespie made on (me). (I) continue to spread Coach Gillespie’s message on leadership through keynote speeches and presentations at coaches’ clinics.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Paul Babcock's heartfelt work explores how in the sixth grade, the author met Gordie Gillespie, an icon in the world of Midwestern baseball and his goals were set. He wanted to play for him and bring him his first national championship at the College of St. Francis.

This is a heartwarming story that recounts Babcock's journey through adversity, and countless disappointments and obstacles. In the end, he became the best baseball player he could be under the tutelage of the man he considered to be among the very best of baseball coaches.
