Pete's grandson, Everett

On this edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson revisits his days as a sore loser, but this time his confessions come with a brighter outlook.

With his grandson visiting from California after the end of his Little League season, Pete remembers how he hated to lose as a youngster, but it’s his love for the game that still burns inside him today as a man in his 80’s.

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard “Pete” Peterson, author of Growing Up With Clemente and the editor of The St. Louis Baseball Reader, newly released in paperback.

Richard "Pete" Peterson is the creative force behind WSIU Radio's Reading Baseball Series. Pete's original essays and commentaries are a regular staple for any fan of the game.
