The novel One Batter, One Pitch is a sequel to An Informal Boston Education, which chronicled the chaotic, frenetic, and hilarious career, social, and romantic missteps of quirky, wisecracking, ballplaying, weightlifting, and beer-drinking young Boston CPA Rocky Collins; until, with the help of a good woman and promising new job, he finally gets his life under control. But now hes approaching middle age, frustrated with limiting age-related physical issues and feeling increasingly out of tune with the culture; and worst of all, the changing competitive landscape facing the company hes been successful with for twenty years has become an insurmountable problem. Hes working too hard and long with disappointing results, and worrying that, despite his rewarding family life and a solid circle of old friends, hes going to end up a failed, essentially numerical man. But his unrelenting drive and determination, intelligence and wit, along with the unwavering empathetic support of his equally hard-working wife, finally have him hooking up with a couple of charismatic, successful Boston venture capitalists, who not only appreciate his talent and work ethic, but also his imagination and combative Boston-Irish humor. He gets his career back on track by helping them turn around a couple of mid-size manufacturing companies, while also helping found a new independent baseball league with some very unique rules, equipment, and playing fields; designing The Penultimate Boston Sports Bar; and helping a black Boston area youth minister build a Life Training and Development Center.

A new type of player is stepping into the batter’s box—the on-base specialist. And it’s about time; the last major advance in baseball offense came in 1973 with the designated hitter in the American League. In recent years, pitching has dominated hitting, and run production has been on the decline. With a new dynamic in offensive strategy, that is probably about to change. Batters in the future could well be on base more frequently than before, and more successful in getting on base than pitchers will be in getting them out. Most importantly, the on-base specialist will be expected to help his team score more runs and win more games. This book is the first to explore this concept. The reasoning and statistics behind this new model of offense are sound and the implications may be game-changing.

"Hard Knocks and Consequences Too, by Fred G. Dickenson, is a folksy and practical walk down the path of life; it is about learning from personal experiences in ways that imprint upon one's character. Fred's devotional anthology is fun to read, and it inspires the reader to reflect a little deeper into how everyday life can teach profound spiritual lessons. Whether read as a daily devotional or as a biographical journey, it will inspire any reader. I recommend Hard Knocks and Consequences Too for any believer who desires to learn how to learn from experience." -David Martz, EdD, author and adult educator "In Hard Knocks and Consequences Too, you are gently coaxed into mental and spiritual exercise that begins to plant principles from God's Word, into your heart. Once you have read it, not only will more seed be planted, but you will begin to see a harvest. It will impact your life in a positive way." -Missionary Wilson Gauntt, MEd, professor at Global University "Fred has a gift in assessing his life-past and present-with a candid approach to proving that God has a hand in everything ... and he does it with an enjoyable sense of humor and humility. I recommend both books for your personal library, as a gift to a loved one in spiritual need (or not); for church libraries and ministries; and to anyone for enjoyment and a trip down memory lane." -Donna Gentry Weeden, 2013 president of Paradise Historical Society, Inc.; past Texas municipal court judge

All over the world, the statues of Mary are miraculously crying. In the meantime, a journalist in Washington D.C. is diverted away from her own personal demons when she takes it upon herself to question why the Vatican is not declaring these occurrences as miracles after witnessing the unexplainable phenomena herself. The journalist suspects her nightly barage of haunting nightmares about the violent murders of countless women from five thousand year old priestesses to women accused of being witches in the seventeenth century may have something to do with the answer, as she investigates the biggest story of her life. Women all over the world in the 21st century are feeling "the awakening" as the discovery of ancient artifacts are disproving the beliefs set forth by patriarchal religions for thousands of years. When the journalist receives a visitation from a beautiful Goddess who at first appears to be the Virgin Mary, she suddenly realizes that an ancient religious and political cover up has grossly distorted some very important historical truths. As the journalist investigates and begins to publicly write about what she has uncovered, death threats and terror follow next as powerful members of the world's patriarchal religions and the age old male-run organizations that support them fight viciously to keep one of the world's oldest and most deceptive societal form of control against women hidden from the world. But as intimidation and threats increase, so too do the miracles and visitations from the real Sleeping Goddess, as she awakens once again, to bless and protect the world while igniting the hearts and souls of oppressed women everywhere.

"This book provides practical strategies for developing the mental skills which help speed you to your full potential."---Dave Winfield What does it mean to play heads-up baseball? A heads-up player has confidence in his ability, keeps control in pressure situations, and focuses on one pitch at a time. His mental skills enable him to play consistently at or near his best despite the adversity baseball presents each day. "My ability to fully focus on what I had to do on a daily basis was what made me the successful player I was. Sure I had some natural ability, but that only gets you so far. I think I learned how to focus; it wasn't something that I was necessarily born with." -- Hank Aaron "Developing and refining my mental game has played a critical role in my success in baseball. For years players have had to develop these skills on their own. This book provides practical strategies for developing the mental skills that will help speed you toward your full potential." -- Dave Winfield
