Play ball like the hall of famers : the inside scoop from 19 baseball greats

Krasner, Steven. (Author). Neely, Keith, 1943- (Added Author).

Summary: In this inside look at the fundamentals of baseball, sportswriter Steven Krasner asks some of the greatest ball players ever to play in the Major Leagues to explain the strategies and thought processes behind their winning ways. Each chapter includes an in-depth interview with the athlete, a glossary of baseball terms, anecdotes from the player's career, and memories from his youth, as well as advice for getting and maintaining a mental edge during the game. From Johnny Bench on calling a game to Phil Niekro on throwing a knuckleball, heroes of the game offer sports fans a first-rate baseball education using their own big league experiences. More than just a how-to guide for playing baseball, Play Ball Like the Hall of Famers is an intimate look at how professionals do what they do, and how the struggles and influences of their early years informed their later successes.
