5A great read for baseball fans of all ages
By The Baseball Reader
This is a great book if your looking for some short stories (both true and fiction) about the great game of baseball. It is a great collection covering anything from Ripken’s drive for the Ironman title, the summer of 98 and the home run kings, lesser known characters like Pistol Pete Reiser and what life was like after baseball for guys named Joe Dimaggio and Ty Cobb among others.

Highly Recommended

Baseball is a bat-and-ball sport played among two teams of nine players each. The intention is to score runs by hitting a thrown ball with a bat and touching a series of four bases arranged at the corners of a ninety-foot diamond. Players on the batting team take turns hitting versus the pitcher of the fielding team, which tries to stop them from scoring runs by getting hitters out in any of various ways. A player on the batting team may stop at any of the bases and later advance thru a teammate’s hit or other means. The teams switch amidst batting and fielding whenever the fielding team records three outs. One turn at bat for each team constitutes an inning and nine innings make up a professional game. The team with the most runs at the end of the game wins.

Evolving from older bat-and-ball games, an early form of baseball was being played in England by the mid-eighteenth century. This game was brought by immigrants to North America, where the modern version developed. By the late nineteenth century, baseball was widely recognized as the national sport of the United States. Baseball is now general in North America, elements of Central and South America and the Caribbean, and parts of East Asia.

In North America, professional Major League Baseball (MLB) teams are separated into the National League (NL) and American League (AL), each with three divisions: East, West, and Central. The major league champion is determined by playoffs that culminate in the World Series. Four teams make the playoffs from each league: the three regular season section winners, plus one wild card team. Baseball is the leading team sport in both Japan and Cuba, and the top level of play is likewise split amongst two leagues: Japan’s Central League and Pacific League; Cuba’s West League and East League. In the National and Central leagues, the pitcher is required to bat, per the traditionalisti rules. In the American, Pacific, and both Cuban leagues, there is a tenth player, a designated hitter, who bats for the pitcher. Each top-level team has a farm system of one or more minor league teams.
