Launch Party

Thanks for all who came out to our launch party at Eastern Mennonite University.  It was great to see all of you and great to be with Margot again.  I appreciate your interest in the book and the issue of youth sports.  We continue to get requests for radio interviews which I will post after they are aired.  We were recently on WYLL Salem Radio Chicago with Mark Elfstrand.  On May 1 our interview with Pat Williams, Senior VP of the Orlando Magic will air on WORL – AM 660 on the Pat Williams Show.  Enjoy the photos from our special day.
