Baseball FAQ: All That’s Left to Know About America’s Pastime

We rated this book:


What else is there to say about America’s pastime, the great game of baseball? It’s not so much about whether there is anything more to say, but there certainly is a new way to look at the game and it’s rich history. If you aren’t sure of all the intricate rules of the game, there is a section explaining the rules that is anything but didactic.

Looking at the history is a real eye-opener. The roots of the game aren’t found in the mid-nineteenth century, as most people believe, but perhaps thousands of years earlier in ancient Egypt, but certainly no later than the 1300s in England. Take a look at the great stadiums — past and present — that have housed the games in the major leagues.

And what would baseball be without great food and fun souvenirs? Not nearly as much fun, so author Tom Demichael has a section dedicated to the best of the best in the various parks and even gives tips on how to get autographs. And there is so much more. Both research and writing are terrific in this book. No baseball fan should be without this in their library.
