Inhaltsangabe: During fifteen seasons in the major leagues, Charlie O?Brien was battery-mate to thirteen pitchers who won the Cy Young Award, presented each year by the Baseball Writers Association of America.
To put that accomplishment in perspective, Hall of Fame catchers Johnny Bench and Yogi Berra each worked with only one Cy Young winner during their careers. Legendary hurlers caught by O?Brien include such greats as Roger Clemens, Dwight Gooden, Bret Saberhagen, and Steve Bedrosian.
O?Brien?s The Cy Young Catcher, written with Doug Wedge, includes up-close views of the thirteen Cy Young Award?winning pitchers at their best . . . and occasionally at their worst.
O?Brien shares an inside perspective on how catchers talk to umpires, what it?s like to be on the receiving end of a 90-mph fastball, and how it feels to be in a clutch situation when the World Series is on the line.
This authentic, down-to-earth memoir will not only delight baseball fans of all stripes, it will also provide keen insights into what separates the game?s greatest competitors from the also-rans.
Über den Autor: CHARLIE O?BRIEN led National League catchers in caught-stealing percentage in 1990, with a score of 45.7 percent, and three times he led the league in outs and assists by catchers. His clutch hitting contributed to a National League Championship and subsequent World Series Championship for the Atlanta Braves in 1995. He is retired from baseball and lives in Oklahoma. DOUG WEDGE is an attorney and freelance writer based in Alabama. His short story, ?What Are You Doing?? was a winner of the 2008 South Carolina Arts Commission?s Short Fiction Contest.
