A comprehensive tome of baseball facts, figures, and
did-you-knows-- newly updated! For fans of baseball trivia, this
updated version of The New Baseball Bible, first published as The
Baseball Catalog in 1980 and selected as a Book-of-the-Month Club
alternate, is sure to provide something for everyone, regardless of
team allegiance. The book covers the following topics: beginnings
of baseball, rules and records, umpires, how to play the game
(i.e., strategy), equipment, ballparks, famous faces (i.e., Hank
Aaron vs. Babe Ruth), managers, executives, trades, the media, big
moments in history, the language of baseball, superstitions and
traditions, spring training, today's game through the 2019 season,
and much more. Veteran sportswriter Dan Schlossberg weaves in
facts, figures, and famous quotes, discusses strategy, and provides
stats and images--many of them never previously published
elsewhere. With this book, you'll discover how the players'
approach, use of equipment, and even salaries and schedules have
changed over time. You will also learn the origin of team and
player nicknames, fun facts about the All-Star Game and World
Series, and so much more. The New Baseball Bible serves as the
perfect gift for fans of America's pastime.
