Published May 2013

An insider’s look at the Washington Nationals’ breakout season and their unique strategy to piece together a contending team, this work shows how the team combined once-in-a-generation talent with an experienced manager and a roster of other talented young players to lead the team to the top of the National League East. Anchored by a pair of number one draft picks—the steady, serious Stephen Strasburg and the brash, bold Bryce Harper—the Nationals have been elevated to first place in the National League East. Beltway Boys dives into Strasburg and Harper’s preordained journey to the major leagues and the challenges they faced once they arrived, including Strasburg’s recovery from Tommy John Surgery and Harper’s misperceived persona. Also included are several never-before-told stories about the budding superstars, manager Davey Johnson, and general manager Mike Rizzo, making this the perfect reference for any baseball fan.

By Dennis Boyd, By Mike Shalin
Cloth Price 25.95

Cloth, PDF, EPUB, Mobipocket

ISBN 9781600786822

Published Jun 2012

Speaking candidly to veteran sportswriter Mike Shalin for the first time about his often tumultuous career in Major League Baseball, Dennis “Oil Can” Boyd recounts a life that began in the Deep South of Mississippi, and the events that led him toward great heights atop the pitcher’s mound at Fenway Park. As part of a stellar rotation alongside Bruce Hurst and a young Roger Clemens, Boyd served a dazzling array of pitches to opposing batters, most notably during the Boston Red Sox ill-fated 1986 World Series run against the New York Mets; and while he was at once brilliant and focused on the mound, off the field—as he affectingly reveals here—Boyd was unraveled by the personal battles he waged with substance abuse and destructive mood swings. As one of the few African American starting pitchers in the history of baseball, Boyd offers a candid, insightful, and often funny portrait of an athlete with boundless passion for the game, his teammates, and the Boston Red Sox.

When Hall of Famer Harmon "Killer" Killebrew died in May 2011, the baseball world lost one of its best hitters and one of the finest ambassadors the game has ever known. Killebrew was second only to Babe Ruth in home runs by an American League slugger, and finished his career with 573 home runs and in 11th place for all-time Major League Baseball history. This book takes a look at the 22-year career of a perennial Most Valuable Player candidate and baseball powerhouse, reviewing his life in and out of baseball and peeling back the mystery surrounding this intensely private athlete. This biography is a look not only at Killebrew's long career as a player, but his life as an announcer and businessman after his retirement from baseball.

This behind-the-scenes look at a dedicated player's journey from a segregated Miami neighborhood to the fabled halls of Cooperstown offers fans a window into the psyche of a fan favorite.
