Long-time fans of the National Pastime have known Moyer's
name for more than 25 years. That's because he's been
pitching in the bigs for all those years.
trademark three pitches - slow, slower, and slowest - the
left-handed Moyer is a pinpoint specialist whose won-lost
record actually got better as he got older -- from his 20s
to his 30s and into 40s. He's only a few wins shy of 300 for
his amazing career.
But this is where the book takes
an unusual turn. Moyer was just about finished as a big
leaguer in his mid-20s until he fatefully encountered a
gravel-voiced, highly confrontational sports psychologist
named Harvey Dorfman. Listening to the "in-your-face"
insights of Dorfman, Moyer began to re-invent himself and
reconstruct his approach to his game. Moyer went on to
become an All-Star and also a World Series
Yogi Berra once observed that "Half of this
game is 90% mental." And Moyer's memoir proves it.
