Summary
Describes the old days of baseball before there were pitching mounds, and contains trivia about players' nicknames, team names, and the design of the uniforms
Summary
This fun and fascinating book tells all about what baseball was like in the old days, from how hard it was to play to the ingenious ways that players tried to cheat to what the game's early equipment was like. Peppered with baseball slang that is defined in the margins (like "Uncle Charlie," "can of corn," and more), Hey Batta Batta Swing! is a home-run read! -- Description by Dawn Towery
