Let's play ball!

Jam-packed with cool baseball trivia, history-making records, unforgettable moments, and wacky true tales of favorite games, players, and events, this book hits a grand slam right out of the park!

This is a perfect gift for the die-hard fan of America’s favorite past-time. Baseball is rich in anecdotes about team superstitions (from the black cat that haunted the Cubs to the “Curse of the Bambino”), the antics of the super-stars, and other facts that come out of left field. Think today’s umpires have a temper? Read about the nineteenth century New Jersey ump who pulled out a gun and shoved it in the face of a player who came at him with a bat. Or about the time three Brooklyn Dodger runners found themselves at third base—together. Fans will laugh, they’ll learn—and they won’t put this down!
