Relates the author's unlikely journey to the big leagues after his athletic dream was nearly destroyed, and how he was sustained by his Christian faith and the love of his family before emerging as one of the National League's premier pitchers.





R.A. Dickey, a starting pitcher for the New York Mets, won 20 games and the National League Cy Young Award in 2012. He is the only active player in the majors who uses the knuckleball as his primary pitch. When not on the road with the team, he lives in Nashville, Tennessee with his wife and four children.
Wayne Coffey is an award-winning journalist for the New York Daily News and the author of more than thirty books.

Sue Corbett is the author of several books for children, including Free Baseball and The Last Newspaper Boy in America. She is also a regular contributor to The Miami Herald, Publishers Weekly, and People magazine.
