Bob Muzikowski, has a connection to the University of Notre Dame. Yesterday, in a conference room in San Diego, CA – Bob met with a number of members of Notre Dame’s Development Team to tell his story. And, oh what a story he has…
I know of this meeting because a good friend of mine, at Notre Dame, was kind enough to give me a copy of Bob’s book “Safe At Home” – and to let me know that Bob was going to meet with his team on Tuesday.
I had never heard of Bob Muzikowski…
A few years back, Paramount Pictures released a movie called “Hardball” starring Keanu Reeves playing an alcoholic “Wall Street” type who turned around his life coaching a Little League baseball team in Chicago. I saw that movie. Well, after reading all 261 pages of Safe At Home last night and this morning – I now know that this movie was un-authorized and a rather “POOR ATTEMPT” by Hollywood – to tell Bob’s story.
Bob Muzikowski and his wife Tina – are heroes. Heroes to thousands of kids in Chicago and New York City who were dealt the challenge of growing up in an environment most of us only know about from the 11 o’clock newscast each night.
The Muzikowski’s and their friends began by using the game of baseball to change kids’ lives. I’ve read many books in my day – and I must admit – Bob & Tina’s story is powerful.
I encourage all who enjoy a great story – to buy their book. You won’t put the book down when you start reading it – and, it will have an impact on how you look at the world – I PROMISE!
I've also provided a link below to a high school that Bob & Tina started with their friends - yeah, they've moved up from Little League to now their own high school! They launched Chicago Hope Academy six years ago and they now have more than 140 students enrolled. Almost 90% of the students can't afford to pay the tuition -- but that hasn't stopped Bob & Tina...
I am in awe of Bob and Tina Mizukowski's commitment to their community - you will be too!!! Please click on all of these links -- and buy the book!!!
