    Reviewed by Anne B. for Readers Favorite

    Former sports writer Suzy Beamer Bohnert is the author of "Game-Day Goddess: Learning Baseball’s Lingo". She has dedicated her book to her mother who taught her to play ball. What a wonderful tribute to her mother and what a wonderful legacy her mother has passed on to her! I grew up in a small rural town in Kentucky where Little League was the name of the game and was a boy’s only sport. I found it very difficult to enjoy watching a game that I just didn’t understand. I would take a book with me and sit on the bleachers and read. Bohnert must have been thinking about people like me when she wrote "Game Day Goddess: Learning Baseball’s Lingo". Bohnert manages to put into a short book what I did not pick up at the ball field. In her overview Bonhert shares a bit of background concerning the game and then moves on to the basics. From there she provides definitions of baseball terms. I found most of the terms and definitions unfamiliar. I never knew a baseball was also called an apple, or that a banana stick is an unsuitable bat. Whoever knew that a utility man is a “versatile player?”

    What a grand idea for a book! Regardless of why you are watching a baseball game, be it Little League or Major League, in person or on TV, the game will be a lot more entertaining if you understand the action on the field. Bohnert makes the game simple and understandable. She takes the mystery out of the game and levels the playing field.
