A Pitcher's Story : There is no big league pitcher who is more respected for his skill than David Cone. Smart. Articulate. Physically and mentally resilient. In his stellar career Cone has won multiple championships and has received countless professional accolades. However, along the way, the perennial all-star has had to adjust to four different ball clubs, recover from a career-threatening arm aneurysm, cope with the lofty expectations that are standard practice for the game's highest paid players, and overcome a humbling three-month, eight-game losing streak in the summer of 2000. Now Cone has granted exclusive and unlimited access to baseball's most respected writer - his long-time friend, Roger Angell of The New Yorker. The result is just what baseball fans everywhere would expect from Angell: an extraordinary inside account of a superstar who examines the technical aspects of pitching, the mental preparation needed to reach the top, and how Cone has had to adjust to all the rewards and drawbacks that accompany fame and fortune in the major leagues.
