Wild Pitches 1

I consider former Padres/Blue Jays/Rays pitcher Dirk Hayhurst a friend. I’ve been on his radio show. I once had breakfast with him (he ate ice cream). The last time I saw him he told me I needed to lose my glasses because he said I was trying too hard, or words to that effect.  As you can see, I have pretty low standards as far as friends go.

But I knew of Dirk Hayhurst as an author before I ever met him in real life, and I’ve liked everything about him as an author.  And now, on the heels of the wonderful “Bullpen Gospels” and “Out of My League,” comes his latest book: “Wild Pitches”

Wild Pitches tips the scales at over 200 pages and is sure to deliver more of what made both Out Of My League and The Bullpen Gospels so enjoyable. More player hijinks (complete with picture evidence) more dramatic encounters, and more behind the scenes looks at life in America’s greatest pastime.

It’s an Ebook, and you can get more info, as well as links to purchase, here.

You should buy it. Hayhurst is a way better writer than a breakfast companion and fashion consultant. Trust me on this.

    I loved his first book and liked his second book. They really were different.

    The first one was about minor league hijinks plus some funny stuff with his grandmother and family about how he has to scrape by to continue his career.

    The second book was more about his relationship with his fiancee/wife with the baseball stuff layered on top of that.

    I’ll probably get the third book sometime too, but I’m just saying that interested readers might want to check reviews & descriptions before assuming the third book is primarily about baseball hijinks because in my opinion the second book was NOT like that.
