He’d talk about inside power. selfish I’ve had plenty of adjectives lobbed my way, and believe me, they’ve stung. There are a lot of stories to tell from a life lived on and off the field: some sweet, others horrific.

Becoming a Major League ballplayer for Dwight and me, that was the dream. when others talked of going 0 for 20, a bad streak for him was 0 for 3. It was an interesting book, but nothing really remarkable about it. You are not going to get any secret tips on how to bat or hit, but you will get a journey on how baseball will make you grow up or you will be very unhappy your entire career.

Becoming a Major League ballplayer for Dwight and me, that was the dream.Dwight is Dwight Gooden. Most people know him for winning the Cy Young Award. To me, though, he’s family, an uncle, but at four years older, really a brother. I can still remember those games of catch with Dwight in the backyard: him rearing back, and me somehow getting my mitt up to stop one of his fireballs. Often the two of us would sit with Grandpa (Dwight’s dad), and he’d tell us how hard it would be to make our dream come true, how just playing our best wouldn’t be enough.He’d talk about “inside power.” At the time, I didn’t really understand what Grandpa was driving at. But I do now. After twenty years in the “bigs” and seven Major League teams, I understand. When I landed with my first team, Milwaukee, I thought being a ballplayer was about hitting home runs. I’ve always been good at that. It took me longer to learn that “the game” as it’s played at the Major League level with millions on the line and the cameras always turned in your direction asks far more of you.If you’re a go-along guy, it can be great. I’ve just found that too often “going along” gets in the way of being a man. I love this game. Love the feel of the bat in my hand, the grass under my feet, the shouts of encouragement as I step into the box. I draw strength from the fans and play my heart out for them.I just wish those who control the game had more respect for the guys doing the playing.What I want to do in this book is show you what it’s been like taking this strange, wonderful, sometimes immensely frustrating life journey. “Malcontent” . . . “greedy” . . . “selfish” I’ve had plenty of adjectives lobbed my way, and believe me, they’ve stung. There are a lot of stories to tell from a life lived on and off the field: some sweet, others horrific. Everything from soaking up Little League glory to nearly being shot to death, from learning the startling truth of how I came by my last name to playing with and for characters like A-Rod, Jeter, Lasorda, Leyland, and Torre. And, yeah, I’ll finally set the record straight about a guy named Steinbrenner and a guy named Bonds.It’s a story Grandpa would want me to tell. It’s a story I need to tell.

Gary Sheffield provides us with a hard-hitting opinionated account of his life beginning when his uncle, Dwight Gooden, used to burn his hand in games of catch in Tampa, Florida, up until his recent trade to the Detroit Tigers. He describes his bitter disappointment in being kicked off his Little League team as a twelve year old for threatening his coach with a bat, his immature view of women as sex objects until he met his wife who didn't share his sentiments, and his experiences with six major league teams. We all have people in our lives who have influenced us either in a positive or negative manner. Dave Huppert, his first minor league manager in the Brewers' farm system, sensed his loneliness and provided necessary encouragement. Brewers' manager Tom Treblehorn, Marlins' manager Jim Leyland and GM Dave Dombrowski, uncle Dwight, and a grandfather who instilled in him the phrase "inside power" are among those who had a positive influence on Gary Sheffield. The wiggle in the bat while waiting for a pitch was an adjustment used to slow himself down. After learning to bat against Uncle Dwight other pitchers appeared slower to him. In meeting his wife and accepting Christ as his savior Gary has found the peace that has eluded him and taught him patience. Nevertheless, it is not inconsistent for him to express his views on a number of subjects related to baseball. If you want his opinion be prepared for an honest answer. If you are afraid of what he might say, then don't ask. This book is a quick read with very short chapters suitable for youngsters. It's refreshing to read a book with no profanity. Good luck, Gary, with your seventh team the Detroit Tigers.

I have been disappointed in reading Inside Power by Gary Sheffield due to its bland, arms-length approach. His experiences read like a stat sheet without details of his inner combustion. He wants to share his story but he doesn't want you to know him, which is a shame because he had my attention and expectation to learn how he overcame his anger and demonstrative attitude. Everything is relative but learning of his struggles to find happiness while keeping company of 5 or 6 beautiful women everyday highlights his shallowness. If you looking for a book that you'll forget in two day it's Inside Power.

GARY SHEFFIELD DOES A GOOD JOB WITH THIS BOOK. INSIDE POWER IS ABOUT HIS LIFE AND CAREER. ONE THING I DID LIKE ABOUT THIS BOOK IS LITTLE IF ANY PROFANITIES. I CAN ALSO APPRECIATE HIS HONESTY ON MANY SUBJECTS AND AGREED WITH HIM ON MOST. I FOUND SHEFFIELD TO BE QUITE HUMAN WITH A BIG EGO AND A BIG MOUTH. I AM GLAD HE HAS FOUND A LOVING WIFE AND GOD, BUT HE IS STILL A PAIN TO DEAL WITH AND A MAJOR HEADACHE IF HE DOESN'T GET HIS WAY. I ADMIRE HIS TALENT AND HE WILL AND SHOULD BE IN THE HALL OF FAME SOME DAY. GROW UP GARY AND BE MORE LIKE YOUR WIFE. I RECOMMEND THIS FOR ALL BASEBALL FANS.

I thought this book was a great story of inspiration, I bought several copies to give away.... It's more then just a baseball story... Gary Sheffield has a very interesting life, one that has only been told one way and this book tells a very different story ....

This is a very brief story about the earlier years of one of baseball's premier players, Gary Sheffield. It is written in very short chapters along the line of Jose Conseco's book, but is more about a maturing process than anything else. Dwight Gooden is Gary's uncle, and that must have been a riot growing up with a role model like that. Gary has alot of baggage he brings around that resembles a chip on his shoulder-- and seems to blame everyone else for any problem that comes along. Sometimes, you have to admit to yourself, that your life is better than most people's and let little things not bother you so much. Eventually, he learns this, and becomes a better person from the "inside". The Inside Power title is to signify his change into becoming a man from a kid. Gary Sheffield is/was one of the world's greatest hitters...when others talked of going 0 for 20, a bad streak for him was 0 for 3. It was an interesting book, but nothing really remarkable about it. You are not going to get any secret tips on how to bat or hit, but you will get a journey on how baseball will make you grow up or you will be very unhappy your entire career. How many people in this world would trade for a career like this guy instead of complaining about 90% of the time about trades and owners? The time he spent with Barry Bonds must have actually made him worse, and is interesting because it was at the wrong time in his career. When I think of Gary Sheffield, I think of a line drive double hit---HARD. guyairey

Gary Sheffield Is one of My Favorite Players and David Ritz is One of Favorite Writers as well. bring there two Worlds together and you have a strong Book. what I dig about Gary Sheffield is that He is One of the very Few true Soul Brothers around who speaks his mind. I miss that from so many cats who are only too happy to grin and get the Money and Be Bought off. Sheff stays on the real.I dug what he said about his Grandpa I can relate to that. Great mentions of his Uncle Dwight "Doc" Gooden. a Strong Book from a Strong Minded Soul Brother.
Sheffield talks about the challenges he faced while being in the Major Leagues. The biggest takeaway from this book is how he became connected to steroids and BALCO.
