  • Dear (Child),
    Hello! My name is Homer. I have created "The S.T.R.I.K.E. FORCE" and invite you to join our team!
    Every member of the S.T.R.I.K.E. FORCE has a mission: to hit a "Home Run Against Drugs." A home run in the game of baseball happens when the batter can go around all of the bases and score at home plate during a single play. They call me "Homer" because I help many children, just like you, to get around the bases and all the way to home plate. You will learn some very important lessons in this book.
    Please read and enjoy your very own personalized book, which will take you on a storybook tour of a big league baseball game.
    I play baseball, so I have included some great tips to help you become a better baseball player! In addition, we have included some lessons to help you become a healthy and successful adult.
    I hope you enjoy your personalized copy of Homer and Me! Until next time, remember... Be A Slugger... Hit A Home Run Against Drugs!
    Your friend, Homer
  • Today, Homer couldn't wait for practice to end. He was heading to (Hometown) to meet (Child) and (Friend). The bus, called the Home Run Express, was already running when he walked out to the parking lot. "Boy, I hope that (Child) is as excited as I am!" thought Homer. "We are going to a big league game together. It's going to be fun!"
    Baseball Tip #1: It is important to stretch slowly before you practice or play. Give your muscles a chance to warm up, so you don't get hurt!
  • Homer was excited as he pulled up to the house where (Child) was waiting. (Child) wasn't alone. In fact, half of the neighborhood was there to meet Homer. "This is my friend, (Friend)," said (Child).
    "That's great," Homer said, "the more the merrier!"
    After Homer met everyone, {First} and {Friend} got on the Home Run Express together.
    "We'll see you after the game," said {First}. "Look for us on TV!"
    S.T.R.I.K.E. FORCE Lesson One: You are important! There is only one person like you. You are special! Always do your best and feel good about yourself.
  • After everyone had buckled up, (Child) asked, "Homer, what are all of these posters on the wall of your bus?" "I'm glad you noticed," Homer replied. "These are posters of my program 'Hit A Home Run Against Drugs.' They help to remind kids to stay away from things that can keep them from reaching their goals."
    "What kind of things?" asked (Child).
    "Bad things, like drugs that can hurt your body," replied Homer. "My goal is to help you make good choices and stay drug-free!"
    Baseball Tip #2: When you start to play catch, start slowly. It's not about how hard you can throw, but it's about getting your arm loose.
  • During the bus ride, Homer and the children shared baseball stories. Some of the children told Homer they had already played on a baseball team. Suddenly, Woodie, the driver, announced over the speaker, "Homer, we are at the stadium!"
    "Hooray!" yelled (Child) and (Friend), "Let's go!"
    As they walked closer, (Child) was amazed at the size of the stadium. "I never realized it was so BIG!" said (Child).
    "WOW!" said (Friend). "Now this is a ball park!"
    "It sure is," said Homer. "It's a great place to work too! It takes a lot of people to put on a baseball game."
    S.T.R.I.K.E. FORCE Lesson Two: A goal is something that you want to achieve. It is important to set a goal. It will help you to make good choices in your life and to be the best you can be.
  • At the stadium, a nice lady named Beth met them at the gate. "Hello, Homer," she said. "Who are your friends?"
    "This is (Child) and (Friend), and they are my special guests today," said Homer.
    "Nice to meet you," said Beth. "You're in for a special treat today." Then she gave everyone a colorful pass to wear around their necks. "This will allow you to visit special places in our stadium," she said.
    "And meet special people too," said Homer. Everyone thanked Beth as they walked into the stadium.
    "Have a good time!" she said.
    "We will," replied (Child), as they headed towards the field.
    Baseball Tip #3: The secret to being a good hitter is to be comfortable. What works for you is what you should do. Also, keep your eye on the ball. You can't hit what you can't see!
  • The kids were amazed at how perfect the baseball field looked. "Now that is the nicest baseball field I have ever seen!" said (Child).
    "The people who work on the field do a good job," said Homer. "They are called groundskeepers, and you will see them run out on the field and smooth things out during the game. Would you like to go down on the field?" asked Homer.
    "Sure!" said (Child).
    "To the field we go!" said Homer.
    As they walked towards the field, another security officer asked to see the special pass the lady had given them.
    "Watch out for flying baseballs," he said, "and have fun!"
    S.T.R.I.K.E. FORCE Lesson 3: Take care of yourself. Eat healthy foods and exercise. This helps you to grow strong and healthy like HOMER!...
