If you have a budding baseball fan in your household, this is one book that you may have difficulty passing up. This is a book where you're going to find everything you'll ever want to know about the game from its history to a close up look at the insides of a baseball. Well, perhaps that is a bit of seventh inning stretch, but you get the idea. If you've seen the earlier edition of the DK baseball book, you'll understand what you are getting into only this one has an extra bonus. You will also be getting a large dollop of clip art and a fold-out wall chart. So, what exactly will you find in this book? Batter up for a look at . . .

Format: Hardcover
I would highly recommend the book Baseball from the Eyewitness series. I have been a fan of baseball and played since I was little and it contained countless facts I'd never heard before. For example, "baseball started out during the revolutionary war and was known as Town Ball". It has tons of photographs with great captions to describe them. It includes photos of antiques from baseball's beginning through more modern pictures of players and fields. I especially enjoyed the explaination about the field and the displays describing every part of a playing field. I would reccomend strongly that you read this book if you want knowledge about the history and players of our great American pasttime...baseball.

I loved the book Baseball from the Eyewitness Series. It had great details and diagrams. The diagrams on the bats and balls were labeled greatly and showed good detail. It had a lot of amazing information in it that you could learn a lot from. I have loved baseball for a long time and have played it for a long time, but this book had some information I had never known. One of the things I didn't know was that baseball, when it first started, was called "Town Ball". I would highly recommend that you read this book if you want to learn about America's Pastime (baseball).
