Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Frederick Brickell (November 9, 1906 - April 8, 1961) was an outfielder in Major League Baseball for eight seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Philadelphia Phillies. Brickell started his professional baseball career in 1926, at the age of 19. That season, he hit .345 for the Wichita Izzies of the Western League. He made his major league debut with the Pirates in August and also hit .345 for them down the stretch. The goal is to score runs by hitting a thrown ball with a bat and touching a series of four bases arranged at the corners of a ninety-foot square, or diamond. Players on one team (the batting team) take turns hitting against the pitcher of the other team (the fielding team), which tries to stop them from scoring runs by getting hitters out in any of several ways.
