Product Overview

Michael Kun ? Pulitzer Prize-nominated author ? and Howard Bloom ? former newspaper reporter and columnist ? explain that, contrary to popular belief, a walk is not always as good as a hit. They argue that it?s not always wrong to root against the home team. They contend that the Houston Astros? jerseys were not the ugliest jerseys ever worn in the major leagues. They rail against the common misconception that Tinkers-to-Evers-to-Chance was a great double play combination. They insist that Shoeless Joe Jackson did not bat right-handed, he did not go barefoot, and he did not refuse to accept money to throw the World Series. They heap scorn upon those who believe Joe DiMaggio was ever ?The Greatest Living Baseball Player.? And they offer a sound rebuke to anyone who thinks a baseball book can?t be smart, funny and informative all at the same time.

The Baseball Uncyclopedia is a witty and irreverent guide that debunks some of the mythology, opinions and widely held beliefs about baseball that fans have clung to for generations.
