A very good book about one of the great pitchers of the game. The book details Glavine's life as a youngster through his time with the Braves. Some of it deals with his mechanics of pitching but most is about his team, teammates, coaches, mangers, owners, etc. If you are a Tom Glavine fan or a Braves fan you will enjoy this book!
A fun book to read after his Induction to the Hall of Fame. It is most definately not a tell all like Ball Four. However, it was interesting to hear Glavine's stories behind his choice between hockey and baseball and his role in the 1994 Strike. Obviously, a good read for Braves fans!
A fantastic read written in a true first person voice. Tom Glavine shares his stories of growing up playing baseball, decisions on picking a sport to pursue professionally, and on being a Brave. As a huge Tom Glavine and Braves fan, I really enjoyed reading this.
