On October 25th, 1986, Ron Darling was on the mound in New York for the biggest game of his life, pitching in front of his teammates in the dugout, tens of thousands of fans in the stadium, and millions in front of their TVs- and he failed. With honesty and clarity, Darling discusses how he lost his cool and his confidence, burdening his team with a deficit from which they escaped only through a miraculous comeback. He also recounts what it was like to be on one of the most successful (and disliked) single season teams in baseball history, and gives glimpses into why they didn't become the dynasty he thinks they could have.
