Description

From the humble heights of a Class-A pitcher's mound tothe deflating lows of sleeping on his gun-toting grandmother's air mattress,veteran reliever Dirk Hayhurst steps out of the bullpen to deliver the bestpitch of his career—a raw and unflinching account of his life in the minorleagues. Whether training tarantulas to protect his room from thievingemployees in a backwater hotel or absorbing the gentle mockery of somenot-quite-starstruck schoolchildren, Hayhurst reveals a side of baseball—andlife—rarely seen on television.

Upon its release, TheBullpen Gospels became a New York Times bestseller; and with comparisons toJim Boutons's Ball Four, The Bullpen Gospels is slated to be aclassic of the genre.
