    Fun for baseball fans

    This book is a wonderful collection of odd facts about baseball. I don't call it trivia, even though the title does, since, as the author notes, George Will said 'Correct thinkers think that 'baseball trivia' is an oxymoron: nothing about baseball is trivial.' Laid out in paragraph form, instead of the usual question and answer form, it frees you from trying to think of answers that you'll never guess. It's sure to give any baseball fan hours of enjoyable reading.
