Description


Bill Denehy was at the top of his game . . . until he threw a pitch that changed the course of his life.

A home-run bio about a gifted pitcher whose National League career held promise until a hard slider to Willie Mays injured his shoulder, "Rage" chronicles Denehy's injury-plagued career in major league baseball and the loss of his vision due to injections used to keep him in the game.

His experience will resonate with athletes, baseball fans, those who struggle with addiction, and those who know someone who does.
