5.0 out of 5 stars very relatable March 16 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was very impressed by this book, the quality of writing I found definitely exceeded my expectations. Hayhursts honest accounts of the vulnerability, frustrations, and bizarre finances of minor and Major League Baseball or so courageously human and relatable that I often felt like I was looking in the mirror. I acquired this book for the content but the next volume will be acquired for the content and quality of writing. As I've read many baseball books before I had reasonably low expectations on how engaging this would be. I was very wrong on that account.

Very few will ever have the balls to go so far illustrating their frustrations, family dramas and faults so well as this, and a beautiful love story to boot.

Much enjoyed

3.0 out of 5 stars My first kindle book Feb. 3 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Out of My League was a good book on the struggles of a baseball player in the minor leagues trying to make it to the big leagues. It gave some insight in trying to balance family life with the expectations of a baseball player and trying to live up to everyones expectations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome.... again! Feb. 5 2013
I didn't think it could get any better than Bullpen Gospels, but somehow Dirk managed to do it. I had this shipped to me in HK, because I couldn't wait for it, and I'm so happy I did. The stories about sharing an apartment and the neighbours next door are classic! Once I actually figure out how to get "Wild Pitches" onto my iPad, I will plough through that one too. I messaged Dirk via Facebook about releasing it on iTunes Canada, and he instructed me how to get it through various apps. Unfortunately, I'm just as bad at technology as his Grandmother is at tact. I think the only one happy about me not figuring this out is my fiancee who doesn't need to hear, "hey honey listen to this" a hundred times. She's never read the book but she's listened to most of the audio book as narrated by me in my best Dirk Hayhurst voice....

Dirk Hayhurst is a very entertaining author who should not be underestimated.

He seems to have an intricate knowledge of the type of experiences and interpersonal relationships that the average reader and baseball fan would find interesting, and, in fact, I would go as far as suggesting that you probably do not have to be a baseball fan to enjoy his books - although it certainly does not hurt.

While very entertaining and full of amusing stories, Out of My League, focuses more on the budding relationship between Dirk and Bonnie rather than the locker room hijinks and experiences of teammates in AAA and eventually the Major Leagues. While baseball is never far from the plot, I'd say this book provides more of a focus on the personal life of a baseball player than The Bullpen Gospels. That said, it is equally as insightful as the original, albeit a little less humorous. It does provide fascinating insight into the self-doubt and depression that someone who many would think are on the top of the world can experience. That, in itself, is reason enough to give the book a read.

Overall, if you have not read the Bullpen Gospels, I would suggest picking it up first. If you have read Hayhurst's original book, I would highly recommend reading this one as well, keeping in mind that you are reading a different book and that your expectations should be a little different for this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining read Dec 15 2012
By Mr.S.
I never EVER read sports books - and I really liked this one (My son read it and I thought I'd give it a look). I really enjoyed the book as it's a good insight into the "winner take all" world of the MLB. It's not just about sports though - it's about life in general. I thought it was a bit cornball in spots but otherwise nicely done.

5.0 out of 5 stars A League of his own... Nov. 28 2012
Great Book. I enjoyed the Bullpen Gospels but this was better. Great peek into the life of a major leaguer and he notes the same kind of things I would if I somehow got there. He is apparently a Christian but there is a lot of bad language and other adult information in the book and it is not at all recommended for children.
