Baseball Gold: Mining
Nuggets from the National
Pastime (2007)

By Dan Schlossberg

Trivia buffs and casual fans alike will
marvel at the nuggets found in Baseball
Gold, the first book of its kind to uncover
some of the quirkiest factoids about our
national pastime. Who, for instance,
would have guessed that the only other
player besides Hank Aaron to homer for
the Braves more than 15 seasons in a
row was Warren Spahn? Or that Hideo
Nomo once gave up a home run after
leaving a game?

Baseball Gold will make a believer out of
you and in the process take you on a
magical tour of the game's unusual
history. As Joaquin Andujar once said
when asked for a one-word description of
baseball, You never know...... Now you
do.
