Overview

A grand slam of a book. The sequel to the bestselling Baseball’s Greatest Insults, with hilarious put-downs and outrageous wisecracks about America’s national pastime.

There are no lyrical passages here, no fond reminiscences about childhood games, no tributes to "inspiring" players. Too much real stuff has happened since Kevin Nelson collected Baseball's Greatest Insults in 1984. This hilarious all-star review reveals how the players, managers, umpires, owners, and the sports media really feel about one another.

Editorial Reviews

Wes Lukowsky
Sports literature is getting as bad a case of "sequelitis" as Hollywood. But what holds for the silver screen also holds for the printed page: sometimes sequels are a good thing. This little book is a case in point. Nelson, who compiled "Baseball's Greatest Insults" (1984) a few years back, reharvests baseball's fertile fields for more nasties. In a collection of this kind, all the author is required to do is provide a context for the remark and deliver it so it's the punch line to a little joke. Nelson is a master. A couple of favorites: Cub soup? "Two sips and you choke"; "Being named manager of Seattle is like being named head chef at McDonald's." Guaranteed fun for baseball fans.
