If you have a basic knowledge of the game of baseball and really want to delve in deeper to the game, the rules, the strategies and traditions...this book is for you. I found after reading the book, I could keep up with my die hard and very knowledgable baseball fan husband who has been playing, coaching and even managing baseball all his life. You really need to love the game or desire to have more than a basic knowledge of the game though, to enjoy this book.

How do you grip the ball differently when throwing a curve vs a fastball? Where does the 2nd baseman position himself with a runner on 1st and a left-handed batter at the plate? What pitcher won the most games? Who holds the highest slugging percentage of all time, and how do you calculate a slugging percentage? How do the major league ballparks differ? How so you keep a scorecard? What rules and historic events have changed the game over the years?

An alright read. Not as engaging as the football version, but still learned quite a bit.
