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.Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
