Adapted for young readers from his New York Times bestselling memoir Wherever I Wind Up, Throwing Strikes: My Quest for Truth and the Perfect Knuckleball is the inspiring story of how knuckleballer R. A. Dickey became one of the game’s best pitchers. He had humble beginnings, and as a child kept a terrible secret. But at a local prep school, coaches saw talent in him and fostered his skills as a player. Dickey went on to pitch in the Olympics while at the University of Tennessee, but his Major League hopes took a downturn when an X-ray revealed a major problem with his throwing arm. It would seem his future in baseball was over before it even began.

But R.A. knew better. Through faith, hope and determination, he achieved his dreams and made it into the major leagues. Now, he’s one of the most respected pitchers in the game, a Cy Young Award winner, and he's changed the way people view the knuckleball - and himself. An inspiring true story about beating the odds, Throwing Strikes is proof that with hard work and devotion, anyone can overcome whatever life throws at them.
