Baseball fans can enjoy fascinating stories about great plays and controversial calls on the diamond, all while testing their own knowledge of the game. Is there a limit to a bat’s length and weight? If a batter swings for his third strike and misses, but the ball gets away from the catcher, can he still run to first? Or is he out? And what happens if the wrong batter comes up to hit—and the right player suddenly realizes that they’re out of order? Through a series of true tales, find out about little-known rules of pitching, batting, and fielding, as well as weird situations that have occurred, smart strategies for winning, and funny things have taken place over the years.
