Description

John Smoltz was one of the greatest Major League pitchers of the late twentieth / early twenty-first century--one of only two in baseball history ever to achieve twenty wins and fifty saves in single seasons--and now he shares the candid, no-holds-barred story of his life, his career, and the game he loves in Starting and Closing.

A Cy Young Award-winner, future Baseball Hall of Famer, and currently a broadcaster for his former team, the Atlanta Braves, Smoltz delivers a powerful memoir with the kind of fascinating insight into game that made Moneyball a runaway bestseller, plus a heartfelt and truly inspiring faith and religious conviction, similar to what illuminates each page of Tim Tebow's smash hit memoir, Through My Eyes.
