Local author teaches kids about kindness in new book

(FOX19) - Local author Doug Coates is releasing his new book, Pitching for Success: Character Lessons the Joe Nuxhall Way. 

The book follows little leaguer Dominic and his struggle with his pitching and angry temper. Dominic doesn't want to cheer for his teammates when he is pitching poorly or mad. However, his passionate coach teaches him how to be more patient with the help of baseball legend, Joe Nuxhall.

Coates hopes to teach young reader not just how to be a good person, but why.
