Abstract:

For the fan who just needs to brush up on America's favorite pastime to the novice learning the finer points of the game. The Baseball Fan's Companion stands ready at the plate to answer all your questions. From the pitcher to the hitter, the strategy of each position is covered, complex rules are explained, and baseball terminology is demystified. Intermingled in all this handy information are sidebars and boxes filled with fun and useful tidbits--from The Most Frequently Unenforced Rules list to the Pine-Tar Game, from Jimmy Piersall's Backwards Home Run to the Most Notorious Disputed Plays in Major League History. Hard-to-find facts on the business side of the game are included here as well, covering everything from no-cut contracts to free agency.
