Starting and Closing: Perseverance, Faith, and One More Year (Hardcover)
John Smoltz was one of the greatest Major League pitchers of the late twentieth / early twenty-first century--one of only two in baseball history ever to achieve twenty wins and fifty saves in single seasons--and now he shares the candid, no-holds-barred story of his life, his career, and the game he loves in Starting and Closing.
A Cy Young Award-winner, future Baseball Hall of Famer, and currently a broadcaster for his former team, the Atlanta Braves, Smoltz delivers a powerful memoir with the kind of fascinating insight into game that made Moneyball a runaway bestseller, plus a heartfelt and truly inspiring faith and religious conviction, similar to what illuminates each page of Tim Tebow's smash hit memoir, Through My Eyes.
“When Smoltz talks about baseball, the book comes alive . . . it all has the ring of authenticity and wisdom.”
