Baseball Dads: A Love Story!

by Matthew S. Hiley

Father. Husband. Coach. Golfer. Successful landscaping company owner.

Hero. Pothead. Vigilante. Murderer. Outlaw. Jedi.

Meet Dwayne Devero. He’s just like you and me, except he simply doesn’t give a s**t any more. He’s had enough. He’s done with people living life wrong. You’ll do it right, or he’ll bury you under the bases at the ballpark where he coaches. It’s just that simple.

Tired of poor decisions being made all around him, from the politics of player positions on his son’s little league baseball team to the philandering of his wife in his own bedroom, Dwayne decides that breaking is better than bending. What follows is a wild ride full of carnage and revenge, led by a man who will stop at absolutely nothing to bring honor back to his family, his community… and children’s baseball.

Baseball Dads is a pitch black comedy by author Matthew S. Hiley in which one man takes on the duty of bludgeoning honor back into a sometimes dishonorable world.

Baseball Dads… Sex, drugs, murder, and children’s baseball.

Author Biography

Matthew S. Hiley was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. He attended Texas Christian University, and then Northwood University, where he met his wife. They have four children together, along with five dogs, six cats, and two lizards (he’s into the animal rescue thing).

After several years in the business world, Hiley decided to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a writer. In 2010 he published his first novel, Hubris Falls, which was met with much critical acclaim. Hubris Falls dealt, in very raw language, with the taboo realities in race, religion, and politics.

In 2011, tired of the sewer-cycle of politics and pop-culture the country had become submerged in, he published his second novel, The Candidates: Based on a True Country. This dark and absurd comedy took swipes at the hypocrisy and self-serving nature of those leading the country, as well as the fame-whores in reality television.

In 2014, the twisted comic mind of Matthew S. Hiley struck again. ‘Baseball Dads’ tells the story of Dwayne Devero, a man who just can’t take it anymore. Tired of poor decisions being made all around him, from the little league baseball field to his own bedroom, Dwayne decides that breaking is better than bending. What follows is a wild ride full of carnage and revenge, led by a man who will stop at nothing to bring honor back to his family… and baseball.

Throughout all of Hiley’s books, there is always a strong message to be found. Sure, you may have to wade through some harsh language, crazy sex, and a plethora of drugs to find it… But it’s there, and it might just slap you in the face when you’re least expecting it.

A terrible musician, a reprehensible fisherman, a less-than-mediocre golfer, and a talentless children’s baseball coach, Matthew S. Hiley has found his place in life as a writer whose voice is sharp, witty, and unafraid.
