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.
