Legendary first baseman Keith Hernandez tells all in this gripping and literary memoir. New York Times Bestseller Keith Hernandez revolutionized the role of first baseman. During his illustrious career with the World Series-winning St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets, he was a perennial fan favorite, earning eleven consecutive Gold Gloves, a National League co-MVP Award, and a batting title. But it was his unique blend of intelligence, humor, and talent--not to mention his unflappable leadership, playful antics, and competitive temperament--that transcended the sport and propelled him to a level of renown that few other athletes have achieved, including his memorable appearances on the television show Seinfeld. Now, with a striking mix of candor and self-reflection, Hernandez takes us along on his journey to baseball immortality. There are the hellacious bus rides and south-of-the-border escapades of his minor league years. His major league benchings, unending plate adjustments, and role in one of the most exciting batting races in history against Pete Rose. Indeed, from the Little League fields of Northern California to the dusty proving grounds of triple-A ball to the grand stages of Busch Stadium and beyond, I'm Keith Hernandez reveals as much about America's favorite pastime as it does about the man himself. What emerges is an honest and compelling assessment of the game's past, present, and future--a memoir that showcases one of baseball's most unique and experienced minds at his very best.

Former All Star Keith Hernandez teaches even the most learned fan a thing or two about baseball with his unparalleled insight into all aspects of the game, from the action in the bullpen to the positioning on the field to the plays at the plate. Praise for Pure Baseball: "We have never seen the game scrutinised with such care and detail. Hernandez provides commentary on two ball games in the 1993 season : a Philles-Braves match-up and an extra innings battle between the Tigers and the Yankees. [He] examines the overall strategies of the game and offers good analyses of fielding techniques, base stealing, lineups, umpiring etiquette, double-steal rundowns, hit-and-runs, signals, infield shifts and more. His most intense and incisive analysis, however, is saved for the psychology of the pitcher-hitter duels. No matter where you are watching, you will never again see the game in the same way." -- Playboy "Keith Hernandez, it turns out, is even smarter than we thought he was in the Mets' glory years. All the subtleties of baseball are revealed as the two games unfold. Mr. Hernandez's opinions and pet-peeves--intentional walks, early-inning sacrifices, throwing fastballs to prevent stolen bases, large gaps in the outfield, pitchers who 'nibble. nibble, nibble,"--are well thought out and clearly articulated. [He] is particularly strong in analyzing the cat-and-mouse game played between pitchers and hitters as the count shifts the odds back and forth." -- New York Times Book Review "An MVP of a guide to the national pastime from savvy 17-year veteran of the major leagues who remains an ardent fan in retirement. Hernandez came up with an angle that works to near perfection: tellingly detailed start-to-finish accounts of two games played midway through the 1993 baseball season." -- Kirkus Reviews(starred)

To many New Yorkers who came of age in the 1980s as Mets fans, Keith Hernandez is the Mets. Two decades after his last game in a New York uniform, the first captain in Mets history is still with them, literally. He's spent most of the last decade in the broadcast booth at Shea Stadium watching the rise and fall of the club and, just as he did when he played, calling it as he sees it. Opinionated, funny, urbane, and unafraid to poke holes in the team or himself, Hernandez is a master at relating the unseen game on the field. The subtle movements and positioning that even the most avid fan can't recognize are easily spotted by the sharp eyes of "Mex." Hernandez has the ability to translate his prodigious baseball achievements as a player into an unrivaled understanding of the game on the field. His acerbic wit and sense of humor are mixed with a pointed, no-nonsense assessment of what he's observing. Shea Good-Bay carries on the high standards of Hernandez's earlier best-selling books. He recalls Shea Stadium both fondly and matter-of-factly in its last year of existence, lamenting the loss of the stadiums he knew, replaced with flashier bandboxes that favor home runs and negate strategy. He looks at the 2008 season and all the hope that arrived with the Johan Santana deal and how much of the optimism went out the window with the team's stumble out of the gate. He speaks frankly on the taint of steroids in the Mitchell Report and how the game has been compromised, as well as the firing of Willie Randolph. Shea Good-Bye looks at the past, present, and future of the Mets and baseball with reflection, insight, and smiles. Only someone who has controlled the carnivorous New York press fromhis locker--crossword puzzle in hand--can explain what is expected of a ballplayer and a ball--club in New York. It isn't for everybody, and no one has lived the life of a New York ballplayer like Keith Hernandez.

In this third edition of Baseball Ratings, author Charles Faber combines the second edition ("great fodder for arguments"--Booklist) with his book on 19th-century greats, Baseball Pioneers ("very impressive"--Reference and User Services Quarterly; "a notable and worthwhile addition"--ARBA), updating the ratings and expanding the commentary in each. The result, Baseball Ratings: The All-Time Best Players at Each Position, 1876 to the Present, is that rarest of rankings books--a time-tested, comprehensive reference work that invites reading. Batters, fielders and pitchers from all major leagues since 1876 are ranked by position and, for pitchers, according to role (e.g., starter, middle reliever, closer) according to career, peak, and per-season achievement. All big league players with at least five years of eligibility are rated, and appendices identify underrated and overrated players, rate multiposition players, and sort the great by handedness.

Warum man manchmal den Ort, den man liebt, verlassen muss, um sich selbst zu finden Seit Generationen leben die Millers in Miller's Valley. Doch jetzt soll der Fluss, an dem das Örtchen liegt, zu einem Wasserreservoir gestaut, das ganze Tal geflutet werden. Während der Tag näher kommt, an dem ihre Heimat für immer verschwinden wird, erinnert Mimi sich an ihre Kindheit und Jugend in Miller's Valley und wie sie den Mut fand, ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen. Eine kraftvolle, emotionale Geschichte über eine Familie und eine Dorfgemeinschaft, die sich unabwendbaren Veränderungen stellen muss; über sonnendurchflutete Kindheitstage, Wachstumsschmerzen und die Kunst, sich selbst und eine neue Heimat zu finden. Unsere Jahre in Miller's Valley erinnert uns daran, dass der Ort, an dem wir aufgewachsen sind, und die Menschen darin zwar verschwinden mögen, aber in unserem Herzen auf immer weiterleben.
