R.A. Dickey
Dickey won a bronze medal with Team USA in the 1996 Olympics.

Welcome to SportsNation! On Monday, we'll chat about the new baseball season with New York Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey, whose book "Wherever I Wind Up" hit stores in March.

Dickey's memoir chronicles more than just his baseball career, also delving into his family's woes and his failures as a husband and father as well as the sexual abuse he suffered as a child.

On the baseball field, Dickey went from being the 18th overall pick in 1996 to bouncing back and forth between the minor and major leagues for the first six years of his career. In 2006, he decided to become a knuckleball pitcher to try and extend his career. It took him a few years, and a few teams, to perfect the pitch but the Mets signed him to a two-year contract in 2011, following his career year when he won 11 games.

Send your questions now and join Dickey Monday at 2:15 p.m. ET!
