ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany woman is sharing her sons' life lesson on the ball field in a new children's book.

Lara Lyn Carter got the idea for the book while watching her sons' baseball games. Now she's signed up to write a series of six tales about her two boys and the lessons they learned playing the game. In Opening Day, her oldest son is forced to play his best friend's team and both want to win.

"It goes through the game explaining how he feels when he has to tag his best friend out, but yet they're able to remain friends and just learn in the end everybody wins," said Lara Lyn Carter, Opening Day Author.

Carter's book is available at Amazon.com and local book stores. She'll sign copies of the book at Doc Heilinbel's Drug Store on Dawson Road June 18th from ten until noon.
