"Game Over" follows career of Éric Gagné

Whenever the Los Angeles Dodgers turned the ball over to Éric Gagné in the late innings of a tight ballgame, they knew the victory was in the bag.

His nickname was Game Over. That's because over a three-year period, he was the most dominant relief pitcher in baseball. And in 2003, he won the Cy Young Award as best pitcher.

But fame and admiration can be fleeting. Éric Gagné's Major League story ended with injuries, pain, and his inclusion in the Mitchell Report on the use of performance-enhancing drugs in Major League Baseball.

That story - with all its high and lows - has been told in a new book, "Game Over".

Susan speaks with the author, journalist Martin Leclerc.
