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 and unflinching account of his life in the minor
leagues. Whether training tarantulas to protect his room from thieving
employees in a backwater hotel or absorbing the gentle mockery of some
not-quite-starstruck schoolchildren, Hayhurst reveals a side of baseball—and
life—rarely seen on television.
Upon its release, The
Bullpen Gospels became a New York Times bestseller; and with comparisons to
Jim Boutons’s Ball Four, The Bullpen Gospels is slated to be a
classic of the genre. Download and start listening now!
