What goes on behind the scenes when athletes compete? 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 led Nicole Sherry to become the groundskeeper at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland. Author Kevin Sylvester tells the stories of 19 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 hardworking 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.

Unique facts and little-known data for the fervent fan. Hockey Hall of Fame Trivia features the most distinguished and influential men and women who have ever played the game, policed the ice or called the shots from the bench and the boardroom. In his latest book hockey trivia guru Don Weekes, who has written more than 20 hockey-trivia books, has created 160 unique questions and eight trivia games that chronicle the members of the Hockey Hall of Fame. Here are some of the challenging questions: Superstars Evgeni Malkin and Ilya Kovalchuk wear sweater numbers honoring which Hall of Fame member? How many of the five Canadian skaters who were on the ice when Darryl Sittler scored the climactic 1976 Canada Cup-winner later became Hall members? Which modern-day player entered the Hall of Fame having scored the highest percentage of his team's total goals in one season? Which NHL 500-goal-scorer waited the longest for Hall recognition after his retirement? Fully illustrated with 300 images, Hockey Hall of Fame Trivia will enlighten novice fans, challenge die-hards and provide fun for anyone of any age interested in hockey and the Hockey Hall of Fame. The Hockey Hall of Fame and Museum in Toronto honors and preserves the history of ice hockey and those who have made outstanding contributions and achievements in the development of the game.
