Reviews

"This isn't the first book to take on the challenge of explaining baseball intricacies, but I've never seen it done better. . . . When it comes to producing 'aha moments' of baseball enlightenment, the book indeed has a high batting average." --The Seattle Times

"Hample calls himself an obsessed fan--obsessed in a good way--and the product of his torment is a funny and informative guide for all levels of fans." --Yankees Magazine

"Engaging. . . . Hample's book is both deceptive in its simplicity (the basic rules, but also the ten different ways a pitcher can commit a balk) and surprising in its range." --Fortune
