Game from Where I Standby Doug Glanville
Synopses & Reviews
"Filled with sharp insights, keen observations, and great stories, his book is championship caliber." —The Philadelphia Inquirer
Doug Glanville, a former major league outfielder and Ivy League graduate, draws on his nine seasons in the big leagues to reveal the human side of baseball and of the men who play it.
In The Game from Where I Stand, Glanville shows us how players prepare for games, deal with race and family issues, cope with streaks and slumps, respond to trades and injuries, and learn the joyful and painful lessons the game imparts. He also tells us with insight and humor what he learned from Jimmy Rollins, Alex Rodriguez, Randy Johnson, Barry Bonds, Curt Schilling, and other legendary and controversial stars.
In his professional career, Glanville experienced every aspect of being a player—the first-round pick, the prospect, the disappointment, the cant-miss, the cornerstone, the veteran, the traded, the injured, the comeback kid. His eye-opening book gives fans a new level of understanding of day-to-day life in the big leagues.
