R.A. Dickey has a new book coming out this week called “Wherever I Wind Up”. Some excerpts hit the Internet today to generate buzz for the book. The two revelations that came out today were:

  1. Dickey found a syringe on the locker room floor when he played for Texas in 2001. He suspected steroids but didn’t know for sure.
  2. Dickey was sexually abused as a child.

There have been several professional athletes in recent years that have publicly discussed being sexually abused as children.  It’s incredibly courageous to come out publicly with such a painful memory.

It sounds like the book is going to be a good read. And Dickey is a real literary type from all accounts so I’m sure the book is well written and insightful.

Here’s some video of Dickey talking about the book to the media today.
