Covering Home explains principles of meaningful fathering using stories and lessons from the game of baseball. Based on the game's rich history and tradition, Jack Petrash guides fathers and would-be fathers on the path to being effective parents to their children. Speaking to fathers in their own language, Covering Home gives the insight and support men need to be the best they can be. Petrash urges fathers to give themselves to their children the way a player gives himself to the game he loves, looking at every part of himself to see how he can improve; to involve themselves in their children's lives in three ways: through activity, emotion and thoughtfulness; and to have patience - with themselves, most of all.
