Comeback: Dave Dravecky
By Tim Stafford
In one of the most memorable moments of Major League Baseball, Dave Dravecky pitched a winning game—less than a year after undergoing cancer surgery on his pitching arm. But his comeback was short-lived. Just five days after his winning game, Dravecky broke his arm—and would later lose it entirely as the cancer returned.
Dave’s true comeback would come later—as a bestselling author and inspirational speaker offering strength, hope, and comfort inspired by Christian teachings and his own experience with suffering and loss. This book recounts the thrilling details of Dave’s two comebacks—from his early baseball career and brief return to the pitching mound to his ultimate triumph over adversity through unflagging determination and deep Christian faith.
