"Jason Kendall is the toughest baseball player I have ever met, and one of the most insightful. He provides a revealing look inside the game in this fascinating book. It was written with the mangled fingers of an old school catcher, my favorite people in the game. "
-Tim Kurkjian, ESPN Commentator
"Give this book a read. I've known Lee Judge for over 20 years. He has passion for the game and an unquenchable thirst for "Why" questions. He doesn't just want the answer- He wants the understanding. I've spent time with him in Minor League and Major League cities and clubhouses and we are still friends! There is a sincere effort and old school way this book has been put together and it is deserving of your time. You WILL laugh.You WILL learn. You WILL leave with a greater understanding and appreciation for the game WE love." - Clint Hurdle, Manager for the Pitsburgh Pirates and NL Manager of the Year
“Jason Kendall is the ultimate competitor, a modern-day gladiator. If you had nine Jason Kendalls, you could never lose.”
–John Gibbons, Manager, Toronto Blue Jays
"I've had the pleasure of knowing Lee Judge for over 20 years and have always admired his intellectual curiosity as it relates to the strategy and psychology of the game. I'm certain that his passion for the game and unique perspective will stand out to readers in the same way it's always stood out to me."
–Jerry Dipoto, former pitcher for the Cleveland Indians, New York Mets and Colorado Rockies and current General Manager for the Los Angeles Angels
“Old-school and throwback player don't encompass Jason as a player. The game consumed him and he played it with an unparalleled passion. You can't emulate him. It would destroy many players.”
—Mike MacFarlane, former catcher for the Kansas City Royals, Boston Red Sox and Oakland Athletics
"Jason Kendall may be on of the toughest players I've ever been around. He's a straight shootin', no nonsense, old school guy who holds nothing back from how he really feels, and he's as solid as it comes when you're talking Major League."
--Kevin Seitzer. former play for the Kansas City Royals, Oakland Athletics, Milwaukee Brewers and Cleveland Indians
