Ron Darling

Ron Darling is an Emmy-award winning MLB analyst and of course a former major league pitcher.   His new book, “Game 7, 1986: Failure and Triumph in the Biggest Game of My Life” chronicles his experience as the starter in the deciding game of the ’86 World Series. It’s a refreshingly honest look inside the mind of a top athlete, and we had a fun chat about why he decide to write the book, the vulnerability of professional athletes, and how the 2016 Cubs can possibly live up to expectations.
