Description
From the humble heights of a Class-A pitcher's mound to the deflating lows of sleeping on his gun-toting grandmother's air mattress, veteran reliever Dirk Hayhurst steps out of the bullpen to deliver the best pitch of his career-a raw, unflinching, and surprisingly moving account of his life in the minors. Hayhurst captures the absurdities, the grim realities, and the occasional nuggets of hard-won wisdom culled from four seasons in the minors. Whether training tarantulas to protect his room from thieving employees in a backwater hotel, watching the raging battles between his partially paralyzed father and his alcoholic brother, or absorbing the verbal barbs of some less-than-impressed schoolchildren, Hayhurst reveals a side of baseball-and life-you won't see on ESPN.
