Narrator: David Cone
Met and Yankee All-Star Pitcher David Cone shares lessons from the World Series and beyond in this essential memoir 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." (Andy Pettitte on David Cone)
To any baseball fan, David 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. A five-time All-Star and five-time World champion now gives his 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 listeners inside the mind of a thoughtful pitcher, detailing Cone’s passion, composure, and strategies. The audiobook 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 offers 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.
