Publisher's Summary

One of the most respected and successful athletes ever to grace a major-league pitcher's mound, Orel Hershiser had an approach to the game that put him in a class by himself. Now that he's retired, this Cy Young Award winner, MVP of division- and World Series-winning teams, and Sports Illustrated "Sportsman of the Year" looks back on the people, events, and decisions that most affected his life, on the field and off.

A fun listen

I like baseball. So I am already biased. This was a fun listen. I enjoyed the stories. I liked the fact that the author tied the stories to principles. I can't recall all 9 principles after listening to it, but I can recall some of them. If you like baseball, I think you will enjoy listening to the stories (and the principles) of one of the game's great pitchers.
