The Big Book of Baseball Brainteasers
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2004 - Sports & Recreation - 288 pages
Here’s one big baseball book for big fans of the game. They’ll find plenty to enjoy and challenge them: fun facts, questions and answers, cool quotations from the greats, and amusing line drawings. And the trivia covers all the bases, focusing on bats, the pitcher’s mound, the infield, base runners, and the dugout; and even taking a look off the field and into the press box. What does an umpire do when a blackout occurs midway through a game? What team had one of the most potent lineups of all time, with an incredible five men who had more than 100 runs in a season and three eventual Hall of Famers? Perfect for those with baseball on the brain.
