Former Mets pitcher Darling was a “good but not great pitcher” but “became a student of the game—and a very observant, self-aware one at that (Booklist).” In The Complete Game, he takes readers through a sequence of nine innings from selected games in his career, detailing the strategy and emotions at each stage of the action. A gritty, fascinating account. See our current display for others books on baseball lore, the game’s business side, and, of course, the storied Red Sox.
