5.0 out of 5 stars Simply a must-read for any baseball or sports fans, March 6, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Out of My League (Kindle Edition)
Dirk Hayhurst has once again provided readers with a book that simply can't be put down. "Out Of My League" is a truly compelling book about more of his time spent in the minors, his growing relationship with his fiancee, and his eventual shot at being a Major League Baseball player.

Although there's a lot of the same players and characters as his first book, "The Bullpen Gospels", one doesn't necessarily have to have read that book in order to enjoy this one (but I highly recommend it!). Dirk's humanness (if that's even a word) really shines in his writing style - he knows he's a borderline nobody in the grand scheme of things, and doesn't try to make himself out to be anything else. You personally can feel and relate to his triumphs and his tragedies. I received this book on a Friday, and had really hoped to stretch it out, and savor it over the course of a week. By Sunday night, I was done - staying up much later than I anticipated in order to finish it.

Yes, the book is THAT GOOD.

If you're a fan of books about the inside life of baseball, or any sport at all, this book deserves a permanent place on your bookshelf. I can't recommend it enough.
