About the Book

Full Count: The Education of a Pitcher

Met and Yankee All-Star pitcher David Cone shares lessons from the World Series and beyond in this essential memoir for baseball fans everywhere.

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 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.

And, 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.
