Pressure Makes Diamonds A Timeless Tale of America's Greatest Pastime (J. David Miller) pdf, epub, doc

The moment in June of 2010, the looping fly ball landed on the cut, right-field turf in Omaha's Rosenblatt Field, the runner on third base jumped for joy and then crossed a home plate smothered by his teammates. The University of South Carolina Gamecocks had just delivered the school's first, major national championship in its 200-year history at the NCAA College World Series.The event culminated a journey that began in 1892 with "College Boys," who dipped into their own pockets to pay for their own uniforms.

The program had suffered decades of never having a full-time baseball coach — at one time the team was led by an English professor, running the gamut of human emotions from dismay and defeat to victorious elation and glorious exhilaration.

When university football coach Paul Deitzel recommended Bobby Richardson, the famous New York Yankee World Series MVP, as the school's first, full-time coach, the program shifted gears. Consecutive winning seasons over three decades under three stellar coaches, Richardson, June Raines and three-time, NCAA Division I Baseball Coach of the Year, Ray Tanner, brought them ever closer to the cherished championship goal.

This meticulously researched book, however, chronicles more than mere baseball history. The co-authors shine a brilliant beacon on the subtle, yet important, life lessons that consistently turned under pressure pieces of coal, teen-aged players, into sparkling diamonds, solid young men of character and grace, on and off the playing fields. In the end, the timeless tale shines light on what makes us all a little better for trying to make things go right in the face of adversities.
