Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Finally, a simple and straightforward guide to understanding the basics of baseball, written specifically for Cool Chicks! The Cool Chick's Guide to Baseball is for women who are drawn into this sport by the people they love. Whether you are married to an avid fan, or your son has joined a Little League team, or you want to make a good impression on a new sweetie, suddenly you find yourself stuck in the stadium or stationed in front of the TV for endless hours. Since you have to watch the game, why not enjoy it? The Cool Chick's Guide to Baseball contains all the information needed to decipher baseball, from rules, strategies, and keeping score, to players and their positions. Far from an ultra-technical, jargon-filled snore, the Cool Chick guide provides basic but thorough information for the casual fan. It includes the lingo a savvy cool chick needs to know (it's "cap," not "hat," and "manager," not coach), as well as some must-know historical facts about the game (who are the ten greatest players of all time?). And hey, if that doesn't interest you, skip ahead to other sections like wardrobe (what should I wear to a game?), entertainment (a list of favorite baseball movies), and cuisine (how many calories are in a chili dog?). Written with style and spunk, this guide is not only educational but also thoroughly enjoyable.
