Dave Clark

DaveDave Clark is an author, motivational speaker, and an advocate for children with differing abilities. His incredible career includes: MLB International coach, Olympic baseball coach, broadcaster, professional baseball player, coach and scout for Major League Baseball, and professional baseball team owner. Having lost the use of his legs after contracting polio in infancy, Dave saw past his physical limitations and achieved his dream of playing professional baseball and has spent his career helping children and parents do the same through the Disability, Dream, & Do (D3) sports programs, which are organized all over the country for children with differing abilities. A Pound of Kindness is a true story—Dave reunited with Ernie Pound after fifty years and thanked him for his compassion and later presented him with the Pulling Each Other Along Award, named in honor of his act of compassion. He hopes his story will help inspire others to be kind to others, no matter their differences.


Proceeds from the sale of A Pound of Kindness will be donated to the Disability, Dream, & Do (D3) programs.
