Product description

Why do we sometimes refer to a left-handed pitcher as a “southpaw?” Why are major league pitchers normally limited to 100 pitches per game? Why was Jack Roosevelt Robinson the first African-American ever to play as part of an official lineup for a team in Major League Baseball? Why is a baseball field sometimes referred to as a diamond?

This book provides over 100 questions and detailed answers concerning the traditions, rules, and history of the national pastime. Organized by the sport’s five eras—Dead Ball, Live Ball, Golden Age, Expansion, and Steroid Era—it answers questions about hitting, pitching, fielding, base running, managing, scouting and ownership that vex even the most ardent fans of the game. Moreover, this book is an appreciation of how baseball’s traditions began.

You will find the answers to questions like 'Why are major league baseball pitchers normally limited to 100 pitches per game?', 'Why did Chicago's Wrigley Field not host night games until long after World War II?', 'Why are fans invited to stand prior to the home half of the seventh inning?', 'Why was a nineteenth-century umpire discharged from Major League Baseball?' and so many more.
