Publisher's Summary

The Fascinating History of Baseball!
This book is about what makes baseball the sport it is today. We'll take you inside a game to see what individual players are thinking. You will visit the early days of the sport to see some of the influences that have made the game what it is today. You will be inspired by the examples of real players who have pursued a dream, watched their dream crumble before their eyes, and then persisted with dedication and hard work to attain success. If life is about winning and competition, then the game of baseball is a rich soil in which to develop success. This book will give you a fresh background on which to build an informed appreciation of the game and the devotion necessary to succeed at the highest level of the sport.
Baseball is a sport rich in history, culture, and traditions. It doesn't matter if you have devoted your entire life to the game or whether you know little about baseball besides its name; this book is for you! You will find inside this audio both inspiration and a treasure of knowledge to flesh out the game for you. Beyond an on-the-field description of how the game is played, you will be introduced to some of the strategies that have made baseball so unpredictably fascinating.
Because baseball relies equally upon chance and skill, you will discover some of the tactics players have used to try and improve their odds for success: changing the bat, scuffing the ball, bunting, stealing bases, and the use of any number of superstitions and good-luck charms, to name a few. Just for fun, test your own skill and expand your knowledge of baseball by perusing the list of 50 baseball questions; even if you are an expert, you just might uncover something new about the game.

Fun, Fast-Paced Look at Baseball History

Although I'm not a huge baseball nut, I thought this would be a fun and timely read as baseball season kicks into full gear. I was not disappointed. This book covers a huge amount of baseball history in a relatively short space, with a fun, conversational tone. As a casual baseball fan, I especially appreciated learning all about the traditions surrounding baseball. Now when I watch games, I feel like I have a whole new appreciation for what I'm seeing. I highly recommend this for casual and avid baseball fans alike.
