DIRK HAYHURST RUMORS

Dirk Hayhurst implies “pillow-case-sized” bag of weed taken in 2011 Evan Longoria-David Price robbery

During my recent coffee-nursing, noon-wakeup, underwear-only reading of Jeff Passan's work over at Yahoo!

Dirk Hayhurst’s latest book, Bigger than the Game: Restitching a Major League Life, is his most revealing, compelling book yet. Often, it is interesting to trace the evolution of a ballplayer’s career.

Review: Dirk Hayhurst’s “Bigger Than the Game”

Bigger Than the Game By Dirk Hayhurst Citadel, 320 pp., $14.95 paperback The Padres drafted Dirk Hayhurst in the eighth round of the 2003 draft.

Sobsequy: A Review of Dirk Hayhurst's Out of My League by Adam Sobsey

It was screenwriting guru Syd Field who introduced, to the best of my knowledge, the notion of the cinematic “plot point.” Hollywood movies have two of these, the first coming roughly a third of the way in, the second two thirds through. Watch any mainstream cinema product, and you can practically set your watch by them. Dirk Hayhurst’s second memoir, Out of My League ...

(Sadly, we did not discuss “Python” this time...
