Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Up for some good old-fashioned baseball bickering? Addressing—and answering!—50 of the most heated, quirkiest, and funniest debates, past and present, this book contains outstanding baseball ammo.
 
Baseball fans are by nature philosophical creatures, prone to engaging fellow devotees of the Grand Old Game in such inherently subjective, often ridiculous, and thoroughly enjoyable debates as: Who was the best-hitting pitcher of all time? Who are the best players left out of the Hall of Fame? Which team dressed its players in the worst uniforms? What was the most lopsided trade ever? Which movie stands above all others as the best baseball flick? Who was the best female player ever? Such questions fall into a wide range of categories and are pondered during pauses in the game, happy hours at the bar, and commercial breaks at home. 

The Seventh Inning Stretch, by noted baseball expert Josh Pahigian, comprises fifty chapters that explore the games most magical and disappointing moments, its ballparks, fans, traditions, and even its representation in pop culture. In short, it addresses—and answers—all of the most interesting baseball arguments that fans have engaged in for decades, and even a few you might never have stopped to consider before.
