About this title


An account of the twenty-year career of baseball's greatest power pitcher includes Ryan's comments on the greats he has pitched against and drugs, glitter, and showboating

From Publishers Weekly:

Coauthored with freelance writer Frommer, this straightforward, no-frills autobiography of one of the most successful pitchers in history, the man whose &quot;heat&quot; has been clocked at more than 100 miles an hour, makes pleasant reading. Ryan got into professional baseball largely through the efforts of a scout for the New York Mets; in the big leagues, he set all sort of records, to which he is still adding at age 41. The only hurler to have achieved five no-hit games, he is also the all-time leader in strikeouts and strikeouts per nine innings; on 22 occasions he has had 15 or more strikeouts in a game and 173 times he has struck out 10 or more, also records. He has pitched for the Mets, the Angels and the Astros, and has been a key figure in five divisional races, but remains a down-home Texan, a fact attested to by the managers, umpires and players whose quotes are included here.
