Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hailed as "a staggering piece of scholarship" () and "an indispensable guide to the language of baseball" (), has become an invaluable resource for those who love the game. Drawing on dozens of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century periodicals, as well as contemporary sources, Dickson's brilliant, illuminating definitions trace the earliest appearances of terms both well known and obscure. This edition includes more than 10,000 terms with 18,000 individual entries, and more than 250 photos. This "impressively comprehensive" () book will delight everyone from the youngest fan to the hard-core aficionado.

Synopsis:

The definitive work on the language of baseball--one of the "Five Best Baseball Books" ().
