Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-9 Baseball, as one of the very few team sports without a clock, is among the slowest of games. This leaves time for statistics, anecdotes, and trivia such as this collection of odd incidents connected with the myriad of rules that control the game. Is a ball that bounces off a player's head and into the center field stands a double or a homer? Can a batter switch his hitting stance from right to left while he's at the plate? All of the strange events are based upon actual incidents, and names, time, and place are provided. Black-and-white cartoon drawings decorate the text. Good for browsing (and arguing), this type of book belongs in every sports collection. Robert Unsworth, Scarsdale Jr . High School , N.Y.
