Kerry Wood wrote a children’s book

May 30, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT

Kerry Wood has been retired for all of two weeks now and he’s already keeping himself busy promoting a children’s book he co-wrote with Cubs beat reporter Carrie Muskat.

Here’s a photo of Muskat holding the book, entitled “All You Can Be: Learning and Growing Through Sports”:


Wood describes the book as “a positive story about ups and downs and how you can come through that and still be a success” and proceeds go to the Kerry Wood Foundation for Chicago-area children.

    ….and here I thought it was going to be a book to teach kids to count to 150.

    Something tells me Jim Brosnan has nothing to worry about.

    So does it explain how to deal with failure without throwing things into the stands? Naaaa It couldn’t, that would be entirely too ironic.

    That’s fantastic.

    I wonder how it compares with the Papelbons’ book “Pitching with the Papelbons”.

    I got one of these as a free handout when I went to a Lowell Spinners game a few years ago.

    I guess children’s books featuring ballplayers are a solid business model?
