Join an evening with former Met and Yankee All-Star pitcher, David Cone, and award-winning sports analyst, Jack Curry, as they sign their co-authored book, “Full Count: The Education of a Pitcher,” at Book Revue on Thursday, May 16 at 6 p.m.
In his book, Cone shares memories from the World Series and beyond for baseball fans everywhere. “There was a sense about him and an aura about him. Even when he was in trouble, he carried himself like a pitcher who said, ‘I’m the man out here.’ And he usually was,” said former Yankees teammate and fellow All-Star, Andy Pettitte.
To any baseball fan, Cone was a bold and brilliant pitcher. During his 17-year career, he became a master of the mechanics and mental toughness a pitcher needs to succeed in the major leagues. The five-time All-Star and five-time World Champion now gives the full count — balls and strikes, errors and outs — of his colorful life in baseball.
From the pitchers he studied to the hitters who infuriated him, “Full Count” takes readers inside the mind of a thoughtful pitcher, detailing Cone’s passion, composure and strategies. The book is also filled with never-before-told stories from the memorable teams Cone played on, ranging from the infamous, late ’80s Mets to the Yankee dynasty of the ’90s.
Along the way, “Full Count” also shares the lessons baseball taught Cone — from his mistakes as a young and naive pitcher to outwitting the best hitters in the world — one pitch at a time.
Reserve your copy of “Full Count” for $28 (list price of the book, plus tax), which you will receive at the event, by calling 631-271-1442 or stopping by Book Revue at 313 New York Ave. in Huntington.
