Product Overview

The Game Behind the Scenes continues and concludes Peter Morris''s superb encyclopedia of the national pastime. Together, both volumes of A Game of Inches contain nearly a thousand entries that illuminate the origins of items ranging from catchers'' masks to hook slides to intentional walks to cork-center baseballs to the reserve clause of baseball''s Basic Agreement. This volume concentrates on ballparks, fans, marketing, statistics, the building of teams, and other related aspects of the game. This book will give any reader a deeper appreciation of why baseball matters so much to Americans.
