Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey (right) climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in January 2012. The righty climbed in an effort to raise awareness for the issue of human trafficking and in support of an organization called Bombay Teen Challenge. Climbing with Dickey was Mets bullpen catcher Dave Racaniello (left) and Indians pitcher Kevin Slowey. Dickey, who majored in English Literature at the University of Tennessee, is also an author. He penned, with co-author Wayne Coffey, “Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball,” in which he recounts his baseball journey and some of his most painful life experiences, including being the victim of sexual abuse as a child.
