R.A. Dickey has a new book coming out this week called “Wherever I Wind Up”. Some excerpts hit the Internet today to generate buzz for the book. The two revelations that came out today were:

  1. Dickey found a syringe on the locker room floor when he played for Texas in 2001. He suspected steroids but didn’t know for sure.
  2. Dickey was sexually abused as a child.

There have been several professional athletes in recent years that have publicly discussed being sexually abused as children.  It’s incredibly courageous to come out publicly with such a painful memory.

It sounds like the book is going to be a good read. And Dickey is a real literary type from all accounts so I’m sure the book is well written and insightful.

Here’s some video of Dickey talking about the book to the media today.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
