reviewed When You Can't Come Back on
In October of 1988, Dave Dravecky underwent surgery for cancer on his pitching arm. On August 10, 1989, Dravecky pitched again and won a miraculous major league victory for the San Francisco Giants. Five days later, while pitching his second start since cancer surgery, he broke his arm, ending his return for that season. That was the story of 'Comeback' which received a Gold Medallion Award in 1991.

'When You Can't Come Back' deals with depression, burnout, stress, and suffering. It chronicles the struggles that both Jan and Dave have faced since his retirement from baseball. In painfully honest detail it recounts the continuing problems with Dave's arm, which led to its amputation in 1992.
Through the trials the Dravecky's endure, and readers will see their faith grow deeper. They will also see the encouragement and hoe Jan and Dave give to those who face tragic circumstances where a comeback is impossible.
