Overview

Ask Your Uncle (AYU) Baseball Trivia is a new standard of trivia. It transcends the familiar journeyman questions and probes far and wide to see just how much you know about the Grand Old Game. On the pages of AYU Baseball Trivia you get to test your knowledge of baseball's events and milestones and those who wrote the record book to determine what baseball bits and data whirling inside your head you can accurately recall. Warning … the questions of AYU Baseball Trivia are not "cookies" (batting practice-speed fastballs right down the middle of the plate). Rather, AYU Baseball Trivia is the stuff of Cooperstown-hall-of-fame quality questions that consistently paint the black. Uncle challenges you to step in the box and take your cuts!

AYU Baseball Trivia easy-to-use format supplies answers on the next non-facing pages that follow the questions. Readers avoid the annoying rifling through the back of the book trying to match questions to answers. Result: More time examining questions, less time spent shuffling pages.

Any baseball fan that loves the game will categorically enjoy AW Baseball Trivia. And if-by law of averages-there's an answer that scoots by you like a Tony Gwynn hot grounder through the left side, go and ask your uncle. He probably has the answer.
