Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few sports lovers are as obsessed with rules and statistics as baseball fans. In So You Think You Know Baseball, lifelong baseball enthusiast Peter E. Meltzer catalogues every noteworthy baseball rule and illustrates it with actual plays, from the historical to the contemporary. Each rule is demonstrated by an interesting play in which Meltzer considers the potentially tricky aspect of the rule in a fun quiz-style format. With a foreword by rules expert Rich Marazzi, the book can be read from start to finish to see if the reader knows the answers or consulted while watching a game to understand the mechanics of a play or how it gets scored. Meltzer’s unique and thoroughly entertaining guide in hand, readers will never again have to scratch their heads over an umpire’s or scorekeeper’s call.

Synopsis:

Essential for armchair umpires and scorekeepers, this guide challenges aficionados on every significant part of the Official Baseball Rules.
