Description

Baseball is "America's national pastime" and the intellectuals' favourite sport. It is a game with a long and colourful history, and hence was a natural subject for an Anecdotes book. This brings together stories from reliable historical sources, anecdotes gleaned from interviews, and some obvious tall tales that have made their way into the mythology of baseball.show more
