Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
Mazzone also coached six Cy Young Award winners - more than any other active coach - and the core group of Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, and John Smoltz anchored what some consider the greatest pitching staff ever assembled on a major league roster. He developed pitchers at various levels of the Braves organization beginning in 1979, and in 2006 takes his talents to the Baltimore Orioles as their new pitching coach. Nothing gave him more satisfaction in Atlanta, however, than the 14 consecutive seasons of the team's extraordinary run of division championships.
The updated softcover edition of Leo Mazzone's Tales from the Braves Mound reveals his coaching philosophies and provides insight into his relationships with Braves pitchers, ranging from such future Hall of Famers as Maddux, Glavine, and Smoltz, to the combustible (and controversial) John Rocker, and on to the underdog 2005 division championship team that beat all the odds. An assortment of stories and memories from the coach´s time on the Braves bench makes Leo Mazzone's Tales from the Braves Mound a must-read for any Braves fan - as well as for baseball fans across the country.
