Professional Baseball Champion Scott Christopher and *Baseball Art and Dreams*
The story of a kid who wanted to play baseball more than anything. When he was six, little league mascot Scott Christopher fell into a pile of glass behind home plate, severing the tendons, nerves, and arteries in his throwing arm. He overcame the injury (he was featured in Sports Illustrated at age twelve) to become a college baseball star and a minor league Baltimore Oriole whose records for stolen base percentages still stand today.
His new book, Baseball, Art and Dreams tells his story and of how one can overcome monumental odds and live an extraordinary life.
Scott will be at explore to talk about his book with its message of “Dream Big, Dream On!” Learn how his amazing story beat the almost one-in-a-million odds as passion and purpose drive Scott's success to become a professional baseball champ. Baseball, Art, and Dreams is a true and inspiring story for everyone.
He and baseball legend Cal Ripkin played on three teams together. In Ripken’s words, “[Scott is] one of the fastest guys I ever played with . . . Scott was always in tune with his experiences on the baseball field. He understood the joys of life beyond most of us. He was a free spirit.”
Scott has been a full time professional artist since the 1980's creating art and promoting cultural exchanges in over 35 countries.
