Now in its third edition—a clear guide to the complete rules of baseball!Admit it: Even if you’re a diehard fan of our national pastime, sometimes an umpire’s call can be a little baffling. And for newer fans, Major League Baseball’s nuanced rules—developed and revised over decades—can be downright perplexing. Now updated throughout with the latest changes, such as the “Buster Posey rule” on collisions at home plate, the Baseball Field Guide explains every rule in plain English:
- Rules that apply before, during, and after the game
- Equipment specifications and field requirements
- Duties of the coaches, managers, and umpires
- Rules for spectators (yes, they have rules, too!)
- The clearest explanation anywhere of the infamous Infield Fly Rule, and much more!
“Splendidly clear and concise.”—Boston Globe “Unlike the official rulebook, which has codes as dense as the Dewey Decimal System, this illustrated reference is easy to read and covers everything.”—San Diego Union-Tribune

Meet the Author
Dan Formosa, Ph.D., spent his grammar school years in Hoboken, NJ, the site of baseball’s first recorded game. A consultant to a wide range of companies and organizations, he has received numerous design awards. He also helped create the Masters in Branding Program at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Dan travels the world frequently in his work. He spends the rest of his time in Piermont, NY, and in New York City—virtually within throwing distance of Hoboken’s old Elysian Fields. He grew up playing stoopball and is a diehard Yankees fan.
Paul Hamburger, originally from New York City, is a recent transplant to sunny Los Angeles, where he works as a creative director. Growing up in the streets of Brooklyn, Paul was an accomplished player of stoopball. As a Mets fan, he is bitter and resentful toward the relative success of other local baseball organizations. He lives in the past, nostalgic for the glory days of the mid-eighties.
