"Pitching in a Pinch" is the first book that I know of that tells of the ins and outs - the inside scoop - of the intracacies of professional baseball. While there are many books you can now purchase on this subject, I'm quite certain that this book, penned in 1912 by the great Christy Mathewson, is the first of its kind. It's quite fascinating to read about the "inside game" of early pro baseball told by one of its greats - the managing techniques, the superstitions, the way the game was played - and how similar yet how different the game was back then. If you are a baseball afficianado, do yourself a favor and read this. It's quite worth it.
