I recently read Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball by New York Mets pitcher and Cy Young Award winner R. A. Dickey. Mr. Dickey’s story is not the typical athlete’s tale of success. He had many obstacles in his upbringing to overcome, including the divorce of his parents, sexual abuse, physical ailments that affected his ability to pitch, and more. His story is very inspirational, and a really good read. I highly recommend this book for those who enjoy stories about athletes, as well as for those who just want to be inspired by an individual’s spirituality and commitment to a goal. And winning the Cy Young Award for his pitching success this past season really put the cherry on the sundae!
