Publisher's Summary

For the real sports fan, this is a must-hear audiobook. It is perhaps the biggest collection of facts and what some might call fiction, since some of the sports stories have been passed on for generations. Although it focuses on baseball, there are scores of insightful anecdotes that cross over into many other sports. It doesn't stop there. It shows how intertwined with everyday life baseball has been over the years, from its relationship to world conflicts to the impact on US presidents.
You'll enjoy the trivia questions at the end of each chapter, some of which you might find simple, some are difficult, but they are all entertaining.
There are literally hundreds of random facts that range from the sublime to the ridiculous. They take you from Abner Doubleday right up to present day. It covers controversial issues surrounding players, owners, and even fans.
We can assure you that, no matter what generation you are from, you will learn the history of baseball. You will hear sports stories from the perspective of people that were there. It begins in Cooperstown and ends with World Series baseball, which has contained some of the most dramatic moments the sport has ever seen.
Not everyone that has left an indelible mark on the sport is a household name, but they will be after you finish the audiobook.
Sports trivia books come and go, but this one sticks around a long time. It stays with us for as long as many of the historic sporting events and the people that made them what they are.
We know baseball has been passed down from one generation to the next, and this sports trivia collection might be, too. It will bring back memories, educate, and most of all, is fun!
