Published in 1989 and again in 1999, this baseball classic now boasts more than 10,000 entries and 18,000 definitions. The author of many best-selling books, including Baseball's Greatest Quotations, Baltimore native Dickson has devoted 25 years to creating the definitive guide to the language, lingo, and lexicon of baseball for the sport's fanatics and lovers of language as well as nine-year-olds looking for a clear definition of the infield fly rule. The terms and phrases cover everything from statistics and strategies to the history of terms and the date they came into play.
