How baseball works

Thomas, Keltie 1966- (Author). Hall, Greg, 1963- (Added Author).

Summary: From grand slams to sacrifice bunts, from the legends of the game to its hottest young stars, from the composition of the infield dirt to what puts the curve in a curveball, "How Baseball Works" delves into all aspects of America's favorite game. Its engaging, science-based approach gives fans young and old the inside skinny on how to throw a strike, find the sweet spot on a bat, read a home run pitch, decode stats, run the bases and chase down flies, choose the best bat, ball, and glove, and much more. The fun-filled, fast-paced text is enhanced by features such as "Quick Hit" factoids, "Star" baseball cards with stories of the game's great players, "Try This!" tips and activities that help youngsters improve their game, and exciting photos of players past and present. "Rules and Regs" and "Baseball Talk" sections introduce the game's sometimes arcane rules and always colorful lingo.
