Wood introduces children's book
CHICAGO -- Kerry Wood shares lessons he's learned in life in a new book, "All You Can Be: Learning and Growing through Sports." Art students from Chicago Public Schools helped illustrate the book. Anyone can benefit from the valuable principles Wood learned, such as staying positive, working with teammates, and the importance of family, even if you don't want to be a Major League pitcher.

The book also has photos of Wood growing up and from his days with the Cubs. Published by Triumph Books, the list price is $16.95, and proceeds go to the Wood Family Foundation.

Wood, 34, retired on May 18 after 14 seasons. On Wednesday, Wood was at Wrigley Field to introduce the book and meet the artists who did the drawings. This is Wood's story, but MLB.com's Carrie Muskat did the writing.
