Few writers know more about pitching, and few pitchers know more about writing than Pat Jordan. Suitors of Spring is a collection of eight of Jordan's essays about pitchers and pitching, originally published in Sports Illustrated. From the cultivated genius of Tom Seaver, to the irresistible wisdom of Johnny Sain, to the tragic mystery of Steve Dalkowski, the fastest pitcher ever, Jordan's portraits show us, simply and hauntingly, that wins and losses have more to do with a pitcher's heart and mind than his velocity and location.
