An unsure father finds his way
“Stealing Home shows us a father-son road trip to the shrines of baseball. Fueled by Seybold's determination to become a better dad, the journey becomes a quest to reconcile the past and future. Part baseball, part fatherhood, and all boyhood, Stealing Home plays out the mystery of love and family. The magic lies in the storytelling that travels the road to something perfect.” — Donna Johnson, author of Holy Ghost Girl: A Memoir
“A beautifully written, touching memoir about family dynamics, revealed in the bonding of a father and son.” — Larry Brill, author of award-winning romance Deja Vu All Over Again
Authentic, emotional, and brave, Ron Seybold’s memoir is a timeless journey of the universal struggle to rise above the past. Stealing Home is beautiful testament to the power of a father’s love. –Claire Ashby, New York Times best-selling author of When You Make It Home
The rarest outcome in sports is baseball’s perfect game. One team does everything right, forcing the other to accomplish nothing. In 150 years of baseball, there have only been 23. Perfect is nearly impossible. As a divorced dad, Ron was trying to redeem his fatherhood with a baseball road trip with his Little League son Nicky. Their odyssey of nine games in eleven days, crossing eight states in a rented convertible, was supposed to salvage his life as an unsure father. Custody fatherhood demoted him to the second team — he was certain of that. One sign of salvation came unbidden in an unscheduled tenth ballgame.
You don't have to drive 3,147 miles to find your way to fatherhood. When Ron did, something magical and rare appeared at the end of the journey, inside his heart as well as on a diamond.
The adventures and revelations of the road led to a deeper reckoning of how Ron’s dad had failed enough at his fatherhood to take his own life. Thousands of miles and dozens of innings delivered a discovery: a drive toward perfect fatherhood has a destination that cannot be found on any map..
