Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball by R.A. Dickey

Description

The Glass fortress meets Ball 4 as Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey weaves searing fairy and baseball perception in this memoir approximately his not likely journey to the big leagues.

An English Lit best at the college of Tennessee, Dickey is as articulate and thoughtful as any professional athlete in any game-and proves it web page after web page, as he provides fresh and fair perception into baseball and a profession not like another. 4youngster years in the past, Dickey was a heralded No. 1 draft choice of the Texas Rangers, simplest to have an $810,000 signing bonus, and his lifestyleslong dream, ripped away via an X- ray-and the invention that he did not have an ulna collateral ligament in his proper elbow. five years in the past, he gave up a file six house runs in 3 innings to the Detroit Tigers-and was successfully consigned to the baseball scrap heap.

Sustained via his profound Christian religion, the affection of his spouse and children, and a constant quest for self-consciousness and authenticity, the immensely likable Dickey main points his transformation from a reckless, risk-taking loner to a grounded, lifestyles- putting forward large leaguer. He emerged as probably the most premiere pitchers within the national League in 2010-and the knuckleballing embodiment of the wonders that perseverance and human knowledge can produce. Dickey perspectives his story as certainly one of redemption. Readers will come to look it as something more-a uniquely American story of thrashing again demons, paying attention to your center, and overcoming peculiar odds.
