Lane Hamilton takes stock of his life and doesn't like what he finds. His friends are all chasing their dreams, while he's working for a goose-stepping bully on the middle-management track to nowhere. When Lane is fired for sleeping through an important meeting, a high school buddy lands him a job with the Durham Bulls. Despite the grueling hours, it doesn't take him long to realize even a bad day at the yard beats a good one in Corporate America.But is his new gig worth risking his magazine-cover girlfriend? And between jealous co-workers and psychotic relief pitchers, will he survive the season? The Greatest Show on Dirt is set in historic Durham Athletic Park, a place so rich in character that it plays as big a role as the crazy cast that makes up Lane's Bulls family.

No one got rich, but they sure had a good time.
