None but the Braves: A Pitcher, a Team, a Champion

In a city that had almost given up on the idea of a world championship, pitcher Tom Glavine turned dreams into reality when he pitched one of the greatest games in World Series History. The 1-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians in game six of the 1995 World Series clinched Atlanta's first world championship and made Glavine a hero. In None But the Braves, Glavine tells the story that led up to this moment of glory, giving readers an insight into what it takes to build a championship team. As the winningest pitcher in baseball in the last five years, he also describes what makes an exceptional pitching staff. He offers an in-depth look at many of the personalities on the team, including Greg Maddux, his fellow pitcher and four-time Cy Young award-winner; former teammate Deion Sanders; and, of course, owner Ted Turner. He also tells his own story from growing up in a working-class family, pushing himself to succeed and his decision to turn down a chance to play pro hockey, opting for baseball instead. Fans of the Braves, and of baseball, will love Glavine's book. It is filled with all the drama and inspiration that make the game America's passion.
