Heading for Home is Kent Stock's autobiographical story of how he ended up the coach of, pound for pound, the greatest high school baseball program in the state of Iowa-Norway-in its final season in 1991 and how he led that team to its 20th state championship. The story is fascinating enough that a movie was made out of it (The Final Season), though the book was written after the movie. And, incredibly, it's his deep integrity that helped lay that path. In fact, the final portion of the book is the fast-page-turning tale of how the movie came to be.
Kent Stock, Ken Fuson. People who witnessed this true story still can't believe what happened. It was so inspiring that Hollywood came calling and retold the story of a small school's baseball team in the motion picture "The Final Season. It's about family, about faith being tested and affirmed; it rings with the truth that if you never give up, incredible things can happen. Sean Astin, the star of "Rudy" and the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, played Coach Kent Stock in this movie filmed mostly in eastern Iowa.
Kent Stock did. This book is about a real guy who opens himself up to wherever the path may lead, faces disappointments and loss, adjusts his goals with impressive maturity (without self-pity, resentment, or even resignation), and as a result, finds joy and fulfillment in places he never expected.
