Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Having written The Code: The Unwritten Rules of Fighting and Retaliation in the NHL, Bernstein now turns to baseball in a wide-ranging work on the tactics of fear, intimidation, and possible retaliation that govern major league baseball (MLB). He looks at beanballs, fights on the field, hard slides, breaking up no-hitters with bunts, and imperial umpires. There's more to this code, e.g., seeking an edge by pilfering signs or by tanking up on pharmaceuticals. Highly recommended for public libraries.
