    A Way Out is the unique personal memoir from All-Star Major League relief pitcher, Billy Wagner. Playing in some of the biggest markets in baseball—New York, Houston, Philadelphia, Atlanta and Boston—Wagner solidified his place in baseball history, retiring in 2010 as the fifth all-time career save leader and second all-time among left-handed pitchers.

    But his personal story of life both on and off the field is what makes Wagner’s story a compelling read. From surviving a line drive that nearly killed him to breaking his right arm twice in one summer and teaching himself to throw left-handed just so he could play baseball, to the off field tragedy of his in-laws who where murdered by another estranged family member. Wagner’s story is about a player who was told he was never good enough and would never make it, yet he beat all odds—both on and off the field, retiring at the top of his game to spend more time with his family.
