One coach’s completely unauthorized tale of survival, set in the manicured sandlots of suburban New Jersey

Bill Geist, semi-permanent coach of Curl Up ‘N Dye’s Fighting Hairdressers, brings us a riotously funny record of an institution and its inmates—the innocent kids, the ruthless coaches, the shameless moms, and the litigious dads. Just when it seems that Little League may be no place for a kid, this all-star line-up of conniving commissioners and mitt-impaired fielders sends the sport off and over the wall.
