Living On The Black : Two Pitchers, Two Teams, One Season to Remember Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Pitchers are at the heart of baseball. Each has the potential to make his team a winner or, very quickly, a loser.

The pressure is huge. In the end, only those with both the arm and the heart and the ability to manage extraordinary stress will emerge as champions.

John Feinstein looks into this complex side of the game through the events of one nerve-racking season and through the eyes of two great pitchers trying to perform at the highest possible level in the twilight of their careers in the biggest media fishbowl in America.

Tom Glavine and Mike Mussina have seen it all in the Major Leagues, remarkable highs and heartbreaking lows.

Both entered the 2007 season in search of individual milestones and one more shot at the World Series--Glavine with the Mets, Mussina a few miles and one borough away with the Yankees.

Despite their proximity, they experienced very different seasons--one pitching for a team dealing with the pressure of trying to qualify for the World Series for the first time in seven years; the other with a legendary team, expected to be there every year. Feinstein captures the rollercoaster that was the 2007 season for both teams through the experiences of two pitchers at the center of it all.

John Feinstein provides a true insider's look into the most intensely watched and scrutinized position in sports-Major League starting
