    I like to think that I know a lot about Baseball and I do But I don t know everything The history of the game is well over 100 years old and is next to impossible to know everything out there about the game This is the reason why I gave The Baseball a chance It seemed like it was going to open up a Pandora s box ofnever before heard of tidb...

    A book that s sure to be entertaining for some, though I felt it was terribly uneven If you re a ballhawk, or an aspiring one, this book, on the whole, is for you If you re interested in how baseballs the physical objects themselves and how they figure in popular culture, then the opening pages, the first section, are for you If you re like me, a baseball history nerd, then the middle section is your cup of tea The chapters about how the baseball is made an incredible process and how A book that...
