David Cone’s New Book “Full Count” Gives Honest Account of His Career

Throughout David Cone’s more than two decades as a professional pitcher — often considered during that time to be among the very best on the planet — he earned a reputation as a cerebral hurler.

So it makes sense that Cone’s autobiography, “Full Count: The Education of a Pitcher,” out Tuesday, is an introspective look at both his career and all the little things that can go through a pitcher’s mind during the best and worst times on the mound.

“Full Count” is no paint-by-numbers life story, nor is it just a collection of fun or tense anecdotes from Cone’s career, which spanned 1986 to 2003 at the big-league level and parts of 13 seasons in New York for either the Mets or Yankees. The five-time All-Star explores what makes a pitcher like him tick.
