A World Series champion known for his trademark pitches—slow, slower, and slowest—Jamie Moyer ended his epic career just a few wins shy of 300 victories. Having pitched for eight teams, he is one of the most popular players in professional baseball and one of only 29 players in the sport’s history to have played major league games for four decades. Moyer was named to the 2003 All-Star Team and has served as an on-air analyst for ESPN and the Major League Baseball Network. At a crucial juncture in his mid-twenties, he encountered world-renowned sports psychologist Harvey Dorfman, whose teachings primed Moyer for a reinvention that would shape his remarkable career. His new memoir unfolds that fateful experience and his 25 extraordinary years in the big leagues. Larry Platt served as the editor of both the Philadelphia Daily News and Philadelphia Magazine and has written for The New York Times Magazine, GQ, New York, and Men’s Journal
