Publisher Comments:

Even if you’re a diehard fan of the national pastime—admit it: sometimes the umpire’s call can be a little baffling. And if you’re relatively new to the game, there’s certainly more than enough to keep you asking questions about the fine points of Major League Baseball. This revised and updated edition of the Baseball Field Guide explains the rules in plain English, enhanced with plenty of examples and illustrations you won’t find anywhere else. The result is an easy-to-use and entertaining reference guide that’s designed for quick and intuitive searches, helping you understand every aspect of the game while adding to your enjoyment of the sport.
 
Inside you’ll find:
 
  • the rules that apply before, during, and after the game
  • equipment specifications and field requirements
  • the duties of the coaches, managers, and umpires
  • the rules for spectators (yes, they have rules, too)
  • the clearest explanation anywhere of the infamous Infield Fly Rule!
