Description

The Closer by Alan Mindell (Author present)
 
R. A. Dickey was the first knuckleball pitcher to ever win a coveted Cy Young Award--despite spending most of his career in the minor leagues. Terry Landers, also a knuckleballer, is Dickey's fictional counterpart in The Closer. The main difference, aside from winning the Cy Young, is that at age thirty-three, Terry has never played in the majors. Once he finally gets his chance, what follows is the heartwarming story of his impact both on the pitching mound and with a family in distress.
