At not quite 6'0," not quite 175 pounds, pitcher Brett Samuels looks more a member of the grounds crew than of the pitching corps. With a semi-nimbus of curls emanating from his cap, he cuts a figure that is equal parts defiant and hilarious.

This is the story of a sharp-tongued junkball pitcher from New York who, surrounded by vastly superior athletes and thriving on guile, wisecracks his way through the Northwest timber towns of the low minor leagues.
