AUTOGRAPHED: Paul O’Neill – Swing and a Hit: Nine Innings of What Baseball Taught Me
July 20, 2022 - August 19, 2022
This Hardcover Edition of Paul O’Neill’s Swing and a Hit: Nine Innings of What Baseball Taught Me is autographed by Paul O’Neill.
The fun and fiery memoir of All Star Yankee and five-time World Champion, Paul O’Neill.
In SWING AND A HIT, O’Neill elaborates on his most important hitting principles, lessons, and memories—exploring those elements across ten chapters (to align with the nine innings of a baseball game and one extra inning). Here, O’Neill, with his intense temperament, describes what he did as a hitter, how he adjusted to pitchers, how he boosted his confidence, how he battled with umpires (and water coolers), and what advice he would give to current hitters.
O’Neill has always been a tough out at the plate. Recalling how he started to swing at bat as a two-year-old and kept swinging it professionally until he was thirty-eight, O’Neill provides constant insights into the beauty and frustration of playing baseball. The legendary Ted Williams said using a round bat to hit a round ball is the most difficult thing to do in sports. Naturally, O’Neill, who once received a surprise call from Williams that was filled with hitting advice, agrees.
