His memoir Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball reveals how despite his ups and downs on the field, his Christian faith, the love of his family, and a quest for self-awareness helped him emerge as one of the premier pitchers in the National League in 2010.

Great segment Leonard - baseball and the Mets need more players like Mr. Dickey. What a pleasure to listen to an educated, articulate, reflective and generous man-and a talented athlete as well!

Thanks for all you have to say about what abused children do - so helpful to hear this. Thank you for your honesty. "Getting to the end of oneself."
