The book points out how baseball and the Bible compliment each other in many ways. The reader will see how daily living can be better and more enjoyable by following the rules of the game. "In the Big Inning God Created Baseball" is entertaining as well as informative. By using quotes from famous baseball stars of the past and present the message contained is made more enjoyable. Yogi Berra said, "If people don't want to come to the ball park, how are you gonna stop them?" To enjoy baseball you don't have to go to the ballpark, just pick up this book and start reading. Intricate details are explained in the book like how to catch a knuckleball, one of baseball's most unpredictable pitches. Bob Uecker says the way to do that is to "wait until the ball stops rolling and pick it up." Rain delays are a part of baseball but none lasted as long as the one Noah experienced in the Bible. 40 days and nights of rain is a mighty big delay. You'll want to read about what happened on one particular Easter Egg hunt at Major League game held by the players for their kids.
