Ryan “Army” Armstrong

“Kids will enjoy this fun read, packed with baseball action. And hey, if this team ever needs a pitching coach (and it definitely does!) I’d be happy to step in.”

-Ryan (Army) Armstrong, Silver Medallist, 2001 Canada Summer Games and Head Pitching Instructor, The Baseball Zone, Mississauga, ON.

A high-five from (the real) Coach Coop!

9TH_Drew_Storen_and_Wilson_Ramos high five copyright freeIf you’ve read Tagged Out, you know that the coach of the (fictional) Toronto Blues baseball team is Coach Coop.

But you may not know that he’s a real person. Or at least, that I borrowed the name of a real “Coach Coop” for the book.

Coach Matthew (“Coop”) Cooper has read—and enjoyed—Tagged Out and he had this to say about it:

“I’m proud to have the same name as one of the greatest coaches in history—Coach Coop!”  

-Matthew (Coop) Cooper, baseball coach

Thanks, coach!
