 About the Book 

Mantle or Mays? A-Rod or Jeter? Clemens, Maddux, and Randy Johnson-or Pedro, Palmer, and Carlton? These are questions baseball fans can spend endless hours debating, and My Team will provide more fuel for the fire as former All-Star pitcherMoreMantle or Mays? A-Rod or Jeter? Clemens, Maddux, and Randy Johnson-or Pedro, Palmer, and Carlton? These are questions baseball fans can spend endless hours debating, and My Team will provide more fuel for the fire as former All-Star pitcher and National League Manager of the Year Larry Dierker shares his opinions on who would make the cut for the ultimate Dream Team.Choosing from the greatest players he has seen in his four decades in the major leagues, Dierker selects twenty-five players for My Team and another twenty-five for the opposition, the Underdogs. All are players that Dierker has played with or against or watched in his years as player, coach, manager, and commentator. Each athlete must have played at least ten years in the major leagues to qualify, and players are judged on their ten best seasons. So is it possible to select two teams comprised of outstanding ballplayers from the past forty years and not have room for Sandy Koufax, Reggie Jackson, Carl Yastrzemski, or Cal Ripken Jr.? Dierkers choices may be unorthodox, but thats part of the fun.My Team may start more controversies than it settles, but Dierkers insights, insider anecdotes, and passion for the game will be irresistible to true baseball fans.
