Author: by Greg Larson
“If Clubbie isn’t the best piece of baseball literature since Ball Four, it’s the leader in the clubhouse.”-Los Angeles Daily News”[A] well-written, realistic, and necessary addition to current baseball literature.” -Library Journal Greg Larson was a starry-eyed fan when he hurtled headfirst into professional baseball.
As the new clubhouse attendant for the Aberdeen IronBirds, a Minor League affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, Larson assumed he’d entered a familiar world.He thought wrong. He quickly discovered the bizarre rituals of life in the Minors: fights between players, teammates quitting in the middle of the games, doomed relationships, and a negligent parent organization.
All the while, Larson, fresh out of college, harbored a secret wish. Despite the team’s struggles and his own lack of baseball talent, he yearned to join the exclusive fraternity of professional ballplayers. Instead, Larson fell deeper into his madcap venture as the scheming clubbie.
He moved into the clubhouse equipment closet, his headquarters to swing deals involving memorabilia, booze, and loads of cash. By his second season, Larson had transformed into a deceptive, dip-spitting veteran, now fully part of a system that exploited players he considered friends.
