Dr. John A. Wood was a professor emeritus of religion at Baylor University. He has a lifelong love of baseball and a great personal collection of baseball memorabilia, including baseballs, posters and more. 

Wood started his journey to attend every Major League ballpark in the 1970s and on the way, he began visiting the gravesites of ballplayers, too. Learning about the end of the men’s lives lead him to research the rest of their lives--families, personal relationships and careers--and wondering what made baseball players tick.

Using his fascination with human nature and his love of baseball, Wood started a project that explored why baseball players became the men they  were on and off the field.

In the book, Wood looks at the personal lives of fifty members of the Hall of Fame, examining their childhoods, families, influences, life-changing events, defining moments, and more. The players range from the really good guys to bizarre characters and even the downright immoral. The author considers how tragedies may have impacted players, such as the shooting of Ty Cobb’s beloved father by his own mother, and seeks to explain the dispositions of others, such as why the great Rogers Hornsby couldn’t seem to get along with anybody. 

By taking a closer look at who the players were as men, Beyond the Ballpark captures the essence of these fifty Hall of Famers. Baseball fanatics, history enthusiasts and lovers of biographies will enjoy meeting one of their own and hearing about the process and the product of this amazing journey. 

The author will have books for sale and available for signing. Part of the proceeds from the sales benefit the Friends of the Waco-McLennan County Library
