A really interesting NPR Fresh Air interview with 37 year-old New York Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey. In his new memoir, Wherever I WInd Up, he talks about his baseball career, developing his knuckleball, and his painful childhood. Dickey was raised by his alcoholic mother and was sexually abused as a child – a secret he kept for 23 years. Dickey talks about how therapy changed his life and improved his knuckleball.
