    I started reading this book...but haven't touched it since they rolled over for Tennessee :laugh:

    Once training camp opens, I might pick it up again. I only made it through the first couple chapters.

    I once read a bio of Eric Liddel.
    It was quite good.

    A couple that I have not read, but have heard are quite good:

    Dave Dravecky
    Orel Hershiser

    Both of whom were pitchers in Major League Baseball.

    I have had both of those, read the Orel Hershiser and I think I just threw out the Dave Dravecky recenently
    I had gotten it as a teenager and after about a dozen years and the fact that it was split in two my wife wouldn't let me keep it anymore :)

    I browsed it a bit but never read it.
    As for Hershiser, i watched him all through his career season in 1988 when he won the World Series with the Dodgers.
    So I did read his.
    But Dravecky played for the Giants so....
