3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great for beginners, boring for true baseball fans 28 avril 2017
Par Clayton K - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Decent book for baseball fans- I see it more as an introductory book with some fun facts. The book was enjoyable but to myself (a big baseball fan) much of the info was already known, so the book was a bit of a bore. If you're just getting into baseball, this book is for you!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good for beginners--but not for "Deeply Serious Geeks" 20 août 2007
Par Steven Peterson - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The subtitle of this well crafted work: "A Professional Fan's Guide for Beginners, Semi-Experts, and Deeply Serious Geeks." For the first two categories, right on! Geeks are not going to learn a whole lot that they already do not know. That aside, though, this is a nice work.

Examples of what is in some of the chapters: Chapter 2 focuses on "Pitchers and Catchers." The first part of the chapter describes basic pitches (and how they are thrown)--fastball, curveball, slider, change-up, split-finger fastball, knuckleball, screwball, spitball (naughty, naughty!), eephus, and gyroball (does it even exist?). Each is described, with a bit of humor added here and there.

Chapter 5 explores "Fielding." There are brief descriptions of what each position has to do. As an old second baseman, I enjoyed reading about the basics of the double play and so on.

Chapter 6 examines "Stadiums" (but should this not be "Stadia," to use the proper Latin term?). One of the more enjoyable features is the description of some unique fields. Think Fenway Park or Wrigley Field. But why not talk about the cool stadium in Cleveland?

Chapter 9 takes a peek at "Random Stuff to Know." E.g., Why K for strikeout on scorecards? What about uniform numbers? The seventh inning stretch? And so on.

This book is a lot of fun. Even hard core baseball fans might enjoy it for its style, even though they may not learn a great deal that is new. For beginners and intermediate fans, though, this will be quite a pleasure!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book to really delve into the game 14 avril 2010
Par Sarasota Suncoast Reviewer - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have grown to really LOVE baseball over the past 5 years and have taken the time to really learn the game. There were some unanswered questions in my mind such as "what do they really talk about on the mound" and this book goes so far as to answer questions such as that. It has wonderful illustrations of all the pitch types - common and not so common. There are detailed explanations about all facets of the game from a "balk" to understanding statistics in baseball and other random stuff such as why baseball players always chew, etc.

I found and still find the book entertaining, helpful and useful. I keep it handy as I watch baseball and can become more active in my watching. Now baseball is no longer just a boring game (I used to think that about 10 years ago). Rather, it's a game with a lot of subtleties. This book helps the reader discover the subtle and not so subtle aspects of baseball.

I love it. A great and easy read and reference.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book for novices and long time fans 12 avril 2009
Par J Powell - Publié sur

I grew up watching and playing baseball. I sometimes visit Major League parks in other cities while traveling.

I have a friend who is not from this country, who now has a son, and he said he wanted to know more about the game.
I decided to buy the book to take a look at it from those 2 perspectives.

I think this book succeeds on both of those levels, and does it while peppering in many bites of trivia.

I think it assumes some basic understanding of the game, which someone could gain from watching a single game.

The title "Watching baseball smarter", implies that one has previously watched the game.

I think it's a great reference book to keep around, great for women or anyone who wants to understand and participate in watching the game, and I think it would be fun thing to take to the ball park and leaf through while enjoying a game.

While it's not exhaustive in statistics, it provides some of the key benchmarks that most people want to know about. The best of the best, stats.

Great gift item, and desk reference!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great for the baseball geek's significant other 4 septembre 2009
Par Jason Stokes - Publié sur

I'm a deeply professed baseball geek, sabremetrics aficianado, and obsessive baseball watcher. I bought this for a quick read through and a help for my darling girlfriend, who struggles to understand what I'm talking about when I reference "Old Abner," an eephus, or some of the finer points of baseball rules.

As a baseball geek, I got a little out of this. Some of the anecdotes were interesting, and I learned a handful of things I didn't already know. On that basis, I'd rate it 3/5 stars for the serious baseball geek.

My girlfriend, on the other hand, rates it 5 stars, and I rate it 5 stars on that basis - as now she understands me! She went from being passe toward baseball to actually enjoying the games, and occasionally trying to keep score herself. This book is a great success to help the layman understand what us obsessives are talking about!
