Arguably the greatest all-around player of all time, Joe DiMaggio also wrote (and McGraw-Hill published in 1948) a paean to the game, titled Baseball for Everyone. For aspiring young players and rabid fans alike, Baseball for Everyone explores the finer points of playing each position, lingers on the pitcher's craft, and dwells on the psychology as well as the mechanics of hitting. With a foreword by famed baseball writer Peter Golenbock new to this paperback edition, Baseball for Everyone remains a wise and revealing look at the mechanics of America's game from one of its greatest practitioners.

Review: Baseball for Everyone

User Review  - Lisa Kilbride - Goodreads

This is one of the best books about baseball itself that I've come across. In it,DiMaggio goes through each position on the field, as well as the pitcher, and describes clearly the responsibilities of each. For a relative novice to the game, I found it immensely enlightening and informative. Read full review
