The New Baseball Catalog (1998)
By Dan Schlossberg, Foreword-Marty Appel
It’s all here: from the origins of the game through the advent of divisional play, wildcard champions, interleague competition, and realignment. Every aspect of the game is covered – from the hot dog to the hot corner: nicknames, famous quotations, origins, superstitions, traditions, big moments, big shots and little shots, spring training, trades, rules, umpires, ushers, legal tricks by groundskeepers, and more. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photos.
