Name that Ballplayer: The Ultimate Baseball "whodunnit?" Quiz
Taking a cue from the legendary TV game show Name That Tune, Wayne Stewart's Name That Ballplayer is a unique baseball quiz book. This is not just a list of questions followed by the answers. Readers are given three sets of clues to help them name the ballplayer in question. If they get the player on the first clue, they are awarded five points. If they require a second clue, they get only three points. And if they need the final clue they're still rewarded, but with only one point. Not only are the clues given in "tiers," but the book's four chapters run from extremely easy (e.g., identifying the likes of Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron) to much more obscure (where was Mickey Mantle born? what do you remember about Johnny Bench?).
