This anthology of short, autobiographical stories features well-known authors telling tales of their own real-life athletic incidents. Some stories are funny, some are serious, and some put their own twist on the whole "sports" concept. The stories include tales of dodgeball, wrestling, track, softball, and even ballet-as-a-sport. Kids will relate to the struggling non-jocks as well as the athletes who take the trophy home.
