Every Pitcher Tells a Story: Letters Gathered by a Devoted Baseball Fan

Every Pitcher Tells a Story: Letters Gathered by a Devoted Baseball Fan Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Seth Swirsky is an Everyfan, writing letters to ballplayers, asking them about key details of their careers and their craft. Here, Swirsky has elicited enlightening responses from many of today's great pitchers, including Roger Clemens, Dave Cone, and Tom Glavine; received illuminating letters from Hall of Famers Steve Carlton and Juan Marichal; a surprising answer on the similarity between pitching and picking stocks from Warren Buffett; and uncovered such delights as the Sun-Maid Raisin lady who married a Major League pitcher. The result is a humorous, often moving testament to the greatness of the game and our admiration for players who hone their skills over a lifetime and achieve greatness on the field.
