From the Publisher

"The best writer in a baseball uniform." --Tyler Kepner, The New York Times

After nearly a decade in the minors, Dirk Hayhurst defied the odds to climb onto the pitcher''s mound for the Toronto Blue Jays. Newly married, with a big league paycheck and a brand new house, Hayhurst was ready for a great season in the Bigs.

Then fate delivered a crushing hit. Hayhurst blew out his pitching shoulder in an insane off-season workout program. After surgery, rehab, and more rehab, his major-league dreams seemed more distant than ever.

From there things got worse, weirder, and funnier. In a crazy world of injured athletes, autograph-seeking nuns, angry wrestlers, and trainers with a taste for torture, Hayhurst learned lessons about the game--and himself--that were not in any rulebook. Honest, soul?searching, insightful, hilarious, and moving, Dirk Hayhurst''s latest memoir is an indisputable baseball classic.

Praise for The Bullpen Gospels and Out of My League

"Entertaining and engaging. . .reminiscent of Jim Bouton''s Ball Four." --Booklist

"A rare gem of a baseball book." --Tom Verducci, Sports Illustrated

"A humorous, candid, and insightful memoir of Hayhurst''s rookie season in the majors. . .Grade: Home Run." --Cleveland Plain Dealer
