An inspiring, national bestselling memoir from a Red Sox hero and MVP of the 2007 World Series. In 2007, Red Sox third baseman Mike Lowell triumphed over a lifetime of adversity when he led the world’s most zealously followed baseball team to the promised land—their second World Series title in four years. But there was much more to the story than what happened that October night.
From the hardships of his childhood in Puerto Rico, to the ups and downs of his baseball career, to his battle with testicular cancer, this is the story of man who overcame every challenge pitched at him to become one of the best third basemen in baseball—and a true role model for millions.
“Lowell’s story . . . [is] told in his own occasionally salty, but always sincere voice . . . quite candid.” —The Hartford Courant
“Mike Lowell is such an honest man, a man who plays the game hard, and plays the game right, the whole time.”—Manny Ramirez, Red Sox outfielder
