NEW YORK -- R.A. Dickey's next pitch is for kids.

The New York Mets' ace has a deal with Dial Books for Younger Readers for three books, the publisher announced Thursday. The books will include a children's version of his memoir "Wherever I Wind Up," scheduled for next fall. He also plans two picture books, one of them called "Knuckleball Ned." Dickey himself specializes in throwing knuckleballs.

Dial is an imprint of Penguin Group (USA).
