RA Dickey graduated from the University of Tennessee in 1997.
In a detailed post for the school’s sports blog, TorchBearer, Ariel Cohen talks to Dickey about his success with the Mets this season.
Dickey also speaks about his time at UT, how he transitioned in to being a knuckleball pitcher, and explains:
“There is something to be said for really developing a skill, working hard, and living each moment well. If you can do that, at the end of the day you will be satisfied… You have to remember to never take yourself too seriously and to realize that no one is entitled to anything except this day and these moments to live well.”
