Summary Nicknamed "Nails" for his hustle and grit, Dykstra was named to three All-Star teams and played in two of the most memorable World Series of the modern era. After retiring he became a business mogul and investment guru. Now he tells all about his tumultuous career, from battling through crippling pain to steroid use and drug addiction, to a life of indulgence and excess, then an epic plunge and the long road back to redemption.
