The Baseball Almanac: The Big Bodacious
Book of Baseball (2002)

By Dan Schlossberg, Foreword-Jay Johnstone


It's all here: from the origins of the game through the advent of divisional
play, wild-card winners, interleague competition and realignment. Every
aspect of the game is covered, from the hot dog to the hot corner:
nicknames, quotations, origins, superstitions, traditions,
trades, rules, umpires, memorable moments, spring training, plus post
season and All-Star highlights.
