Editorial Reviews


"Dirk Hayhurst Writes about baseball in a unique, Observant, insightful, poignent and hilarious." 
--Bob Costas

"Hayhurst's book delves deeper into what happens when a player is broken physically, but it goes a step further, detailing what can happen when a player is also broken mentally. This is a rare treat, and would be essential reading for this fact alone, even if the tale was not well conveyed. However, the book is an incredibly entertaining rollercoaster ride." 
--The Hardball Times

"Dirk Hayhurst has a keen eye for finding the human side in the business-oriented world of professional baseball, something he's demonstrated in his excellent books." 
--Shi Davidi, Toronto Blue Jays beat writer for Sportsnet.ca 

"...Explores uncharted baseball waters with the unique, observant, entertaining eye Hayhurst is famous for. A must read." 
--Jeff Blair, columnist for The Globe And Mail, author of Full Count: Four Decades of Blue Jays Baseball 

"The emotional and psychological struggles in the book affect far more people than most of us realize, in every single walk of life. I truly believe this book will help people. The fact that it is delivered in a package that is fast-paced, engrossing and often hilarious, makes it that much better." 
--Blue Bird Banter

"As an author, Dirk is like the best athletes: remarkably skilled, entertaining as hell and unwilling back down when things get tough." 
--Michael Grange, SportsNet Magazine

"Funny, entertaining . . . I highly recommend Bigger than the Game. Dirk Hayhurst has garnered a lot of attention for this two previous books that gave readers and unparalleled glimpse into the life of a struggling ballplayer. His third book, Bigger than the Game, tells probably the biggest story of the three: it depicts Hayhurst coming to terms with who he is as a person."
--Jays Journal

"Dirk Hayhurst Cements His Baseball Legacy with Bigger Than the Game
--Tyler Duma, Bleacher Report.
