“Dirk Hayhurst has done it again…Turns out hes a starter and a closer.”

—Tim Kurkjian, ESPN

As a major and not-so-major league pitcher, Dirk Hayhurst has learned to master more than striking out batters. While waiting for his name to be called in the bullpen, he honed his gifts as a storyteller, one the New York Times calls the “best writer in a baseball uniform.” In this often hilarious collection of adventures on and off the diamond, Dirk details the intricacies of pulling off an epic team prank, even if its at his own expense;the art of creating the perfect professional baseball nickname;his comically ineffective attempts at writing romance novels;and the bizarre tale in which a bear gets punched in the face (yes, really). No matter how wild his story, Dirk proves once again he knows that its all in the delivery.

“I find his writing both entertaining and thought provoking...unlike his fastball.”

—Ben Zobrist, Tampa Bay Rays All-Star

“Dirk Hayhurst writes about baseball in a unique way. Observant, insightful, human, and hilarious.”

—Bob Costas

“Hayhurst delivers an entertaining story for more than just sports fans.”

—Jordan Bastian, MLB.com

“Hayhurst explains life in the minors and the major leagues like you've never read it before.”

—J. J. Cooper, Baseball America

“Insight and humor from the pitchers mound.”
