Craziness of minor league life captured in new book
The Funniest Thing I've Ever Seen: More than 100 crazy stories from minor league baseball

A car crashing through an outfield wall, an alligator waiting in a player’s bed and a bus exploding on the way to a game are three of the true stories told by minor league players in The Funniest Thing I’ve Ever Seen: More Than 100 of Crazy Stories From Minor League Baseball.

Chuck King spent the summers of 2003 and 2004 visiting minor league ballparks across the country asking minor leaguers a simple question: What is the funniest thing you’ve seen since becoming a professional baseball player?

Each player is profiled in a way that conveys some portion of minor league life (the difficulties of adapting to a new town, living in hotels, the joy of a new ballpark, the search for the best Applebee’s), then the player tells their story.

And what stories they are.

The Funniest Thing I’ve Ever Seen is a collection of wild stories told by the players who pulled the pranks, witnessed the antics, or found themselves in the unfortunate position of being the butt of the joke.

It’s like reading a collection of the best moments from the movie Bull Durham, only these stories actually happened.

“I love it,” said Matt Moore, a fan who has visited minor league parks up and down the east coast. “I can’t believe that the stories are this funny. Think it’s great.”

The Funniest Thing I’ve Ever Seen is quickly becoming a hot seller in minor league ballpark gift shops.

Fans who love baseball or just enjoy outrageous stories and can also find the book here.
