Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally published in 1967, this book by the dean of American sportswriters explores every facet of America's favorite sport: batting, pitching, and fielding; the use of statistics and the importance of scouting; the media; and the powers that govern the business. In tracing baseball's evolution through the past 150 years, it offers fresh insight into the workings of the game and the personalities who drive it.

Author Leonard Koppett writes for the fan who would rather read about the realities of the sport than the myths that surround it. This insider's guide looks at the way baseball people approach each task, and the way they ultimately succeed or fail.

Synopsis:

Despite the changes in the game of baseball, Koppett's book remains a must read for anyone interested in the national pasttime's game beyond the game.
