Just five days after a stunning performance, securing a 4-3 win for his team, Dravecky sustained two successive and devastating injuries to his arm that ended his pitching career for good.In subsequent years, Dravecky would lose his entire arm, his left shoulder blade, and the left side of his collarbone to cancer. But whenever God closes a door, he opens a window—and the window He opened for Dave led to a career as a best-selling author.
