Book Review - The Bullpen Gospels

Career minor league pitcher Dirk Hayhurst chronicles another minor league season with a mixture of humor, insight, hope, and near despair.  From beginning the season on the floor of his grandmother’s house to the last game many, many bus trips later, he gives an indelible account of players, coaches, and fans in the bush leagues.
Hayhurst doesn’t go too deeply into baseball minutia but spends much more time on the human stories around him, including his own troubled family.  The Bullpen Gospels is highly recommended.
