Old baseball trivia

Hey Batta Batta Swing! The Wild Old Days of Baseball

A humorous look at American baseball history, such as uniform designs, team names, player nicknames, and the fine art of cheating. Sprinkled throughout are definitions of unusual baseball terms like cranks (baseball fans), frozen ropes (hard-hit line drives), and Annie Oakleys (walks). The old-timey illustrations perfectly complement the enthusiasm of the text.

A fun read.
