NightSide – Dan Rea Welcomes Dirk Hayhurst, Author Of “Out Of My League”
BOSTON (CBS) – Hayhurst came from a chaotic upbringing, fighting hard to make it all the way to the big leagues. Tune in to hear about his journey, and what it took to finally get there. After years of battling to make it to the big time, Hayhurst was finally called up from the minors. His major league career, however, lasted just two years and he pitched just shy of forty innings. We all know how pampered the superstars are, but what about the fringe players who are there to help fill out roster depth? Call in and ask Hayhurst about his time in the bullpen, and what life is like for the under-the-radar role players…he’s got some great stories!
