About Coach Bob
Hometown – HOWELL
About me – I would like to offer you a heartfelt, "Welcome" to A Glove of Their Own.
My name is Bob Salomon and I have joined three talented authors and one illustrator because this book is the beginning of a movement that, as a father and a coach, I believe in. The idea for this story, born from a child's birthday party and a desire to ensure all children have equipment and a chance to play, has gained enormous momentum and national support. As grateful as I am for that notoriety, it is Debbie Moldovan, Keri Conkling and Lisa Funari-Willever who first believed in the vision of this dream. They are three amazing women, each one unique in their own talents. I am fortunate to have them as colleagues and blessed to call them friends.
Together, we have been humbled and overwhelmed by the support of individuals, Fortune 500 companies, non-profit organizations, professional athletes and kids who simply dream of becoming athletes. Giving back and extending friendship is written between the lines of this story; a story of kids who play with little, worn-out equipment, without coaches or concession stands, all for the love of the game. Our goal is to raise awareness, raise funds, and motivate everyone to play the game forward. Whether you donate your old equipment, organize a community collection, or donate funds to these dedicated organizations, you will have made a difference to a child. Our team is growing everyday and includes the following supporters: Rawlings, LouisvilleSlugger, Modell's Sporting Goods, Upper Deck, Joe Torre, Ken Griffey,Joe Torre, Sean Casey, Craig Biggio,Bernie Williams,Tommy John,Dick Drago,Nelso Cruz,,and many more!
