Keith Hernandez Reflects On Difficult Days In Baseball In New Memoir

The cover of Keith Hernandez's memoir.

Keith Hernandez is a former National League MVP, batting champion, two-time World Series champ, and a beloved New York Met — both on the field and in the broadcast booth. As we found out this spring, he's also pretty good on Twitter. His new book is called “I’m Keith Hernandez,” an account of his early years before the ’82 Cards and the ’86 Mets.  We talked about Hernandez’s childhood, the 2018 Mets, and how the sport is changing.
