Not everyone can be an athlete, but that doesn't stop thousands of others from participating in world-class sporting events. When Patrick Reynolds realized that he couldn't be a race car driver, he turned his love of cars into a successful career as a NASCAR mechanic. A passion for grass and baseball lead Nicole Sherry to become the groundskeeper at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland. Author Kevin Sylvester tells the stories of 20 talented and dedicated behind-the-scenes stars of the sports world. In this new book, the glamour of the frontline athletes takes a backseat to the hard-working people whose jobs are critical to the success of their sport but often go unacknowledged. Readers will discover some very special people who have devoted their lives to supporting the sports they love, including the eagle-eyed baseball scout for the Chicago White Sox, the members of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and the doctor who treats injured players on the Canadian Olympic soccer team. With its real-life stories and lively photographs, Game Day will delight any young sports fan or wannabe athlete.

Ms. Hern's class liked learning about all the jobs behind the scenes of sports. For example, we found the zamboni driver interesting. The book didn't talk too much about female athletes.

This book was okay and at the same time it was wierd and gross. The okay part was the part where they tell what people do on game day. But the wierd and disgusting part was the part where they actually talk about a person that see people pee and test thier pee or urine or golden liquid as they say in the book. I was really grossed out on that part.-Eido
