Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Jim Hickey, Pitching Coach for Tampa Bay Rays"If you want to learn everything there is to know about the game's best closers, then this is the book for you. It confirms what we have suspected all along:  closers are just different."

Palm Beach Post
“‘Closer’ knocks one out of the park… offers some insights, some anecdotes, some laughs. As baseball books go, it’s light but entertaining.”

brewcrewball.com

“I found this book refreshing for its lack of author-induced nostalgia. . . . Neary lets the players do the talking and the judging. . . . This was an interesting yet quick read, recommended to anyone who has an interest in any of the pitchers featured or the general history of closing. ”
