520    "For 19 seasons, Rod Carew was a maestro in the batter's 
       box. Uncoiling from his crouched stance, he seemed to 
       guide the ball wherever he wanted on the way to a whopping
       seven batting titles and a spot in the Baseball Hall of 
       Fame. If only everything in life had been as easy as he 
       made hitting look. In One Tough Out: Fighting Off Life's 
       Curveballs, Carew reflects on the highlights, anecdotes, 
       and friendships from his outstanding career, describing 
       the abuse, poverty, and racism he overcame to even reach 
       the majors. In conversational, confessional prose, he 
       takes readers through the challenges he's conquered in the
       second half of his life, from burying his youngest 
       daughter to surviving several near-fatal bouts with heart 
       disease. He also details the remarkable reason he's alive 
       today: the heart transplant he received from Konrad 
       Reuland, a 29-year-old NFL player he'd met years before. 
       Carew explains how that astonishing connection was 
       revealed and the unique bond he and his wife, Rhonda, have
       since forged with his donor's family. An important thread 
       running through this mosaic of Carew's life is his faith. 
       He illustrates how his mother instilled those beliefs 
       during their darkest days and how conversations with God 
       helped him fight off every curveball life has thrown his 
       way"--|cProvided by publisher.
