Reviews

"One of the most beautifully made sports books I've ever seen."--Ben Reiter "New York Times bestselling author of Astroball"
"Every moment with Bartolo Colón is a story. He's an awesome guy."--Manny Ramirez "Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox teammate"
"He was one of those guys who, when he took the mound, he went all out."--Omar Vizquel "Cleveland Indians teammate"
"He's a great guy, a great human being, who does a lot of things for his country, and he never takes anything for granted."--Albert Pujols "friend and World Baseball Classic teammate for the Dominican Republic"
"Every time he would start, before the game we'd play hide-and-seek. He'd come out of the locker room, and I'd be hiding. I'd have a tarp over me; I'd hide behind walls. I was in garbage cans, linen baskets. And he would always find me, and he would give off this belly laugh. Sometimes I'd jump out at him from inside a closet. It was like we were a couple of kids again."--Dan Warthen "New York Mets pitching coach"
"He could have pitched for me forever."--Terry Collins "New York Mets manager"
"He held up his right arm and said, 'Don't worry, Dad. With this arm I'm going to make you rich and you won't have to work anymore.'"--Miguel Valerio Colón "father"
"My mother did tell me he was a genius at math, though."--José Antonio Torres Reyes "general manager at the Bartolo Colón Baseball Academy"
