Former Vol and current New York Mets starting pitcher R.A. Dickey was recently featured on ESPN's E:60. He was interviewed by Jeremy Schaap about his troubled childhood and rollercoaster professional baseball career.

E:60’s R.A. Dickey feature.

Dickey's new memoir, "Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball" (Penguin/Blue Rider Press), hit the New York Times' bestsellers list for the week of April 29.

That is the latest in a remarkable run of good news for the 37-year-old Dickey, who is off to a 3-1 start for the New York Mets and whose book has drawn rave reviews for its profound candor and graceful writing, Sports Illustrated calling it maybe "the finest nonfiction writing about baseball since Ball Four."

"It's gratifying that the book has been so well-received," Dickey said. "I believed all along that I had a story to share and that God wanted me to share it."
