Very interesting! A little bit of something is mentioned somewhere in this book. Some of the most interesting stories, sidebars and quotes (at least to me) are: "Bat Boys Busted" tells why the minimum age to be a bat boy is 14. "I always turn to the sports pages first, which record people's accomplishments. The front page has nothing but man's failures." -- Earl Warren, Chief Justice of the United States (1953-1969)The story about why teams start different pitchers each day. One of the most inte [...]

Decent collection of baseball trivia (and smaller in size than others). This one was less about the statistics of the game, and more about the history, answering a few "whys" that I've had for awhile. The section on how teams got their names was interesting, and the information about the evolution of the shortstop position was something I hadn't thought about before. Smaller collection, but still informative.

This was a simple, if fun, book. Though I did not learn anything new, it got me ready for baseball season!

Just a so-so collection of random trivia. Many of the points were disconnected and elaborated on at too much length.

If you're a fledgling baseball fan, this book is for you. It's filled with interesting and educational minutia.

I didn't know I had so many questions about baseball. And I can't believe I read so much that I didn't care about. Must be the rainy day then

It was a nice little book that had a lot of random baseball trivia, but some points were disconnected at times and I had a hard time following because of that.

Decent easy to read baseball triviahas a couple of really good questions answeredest for beginners
