...than an umpire casebook. Extensively researched by the author (a SABR member), the book's strength is in its retelling of actual unusual plays. It's acceptable as a "test your rules knowledge" but the standard is The Sporting News Baseball's Knotty Problems followed by Make the Right Call. These two books get a higher mark as the answers are cross-referenced by rule citations. Still, you can't go wrong with this informative and entertaining tome...

This book has some interesting scenarios BUT!! If you are reading this book on your Kindle, you are instructed to find the answers to each of these baseball problems on a future page. Now the real problem--When you skip ahead to whatever the page is-- It does not correlate with the book page numbers. Quite frustrating. For this reason I can only give the Kindle version three stars.

Make that two stars. It's one month later and I could not finish the book.

My husband is a baseball umpire for various local leagues and high schools. He can pick up this little book and pick out a scenario and "make the call". Answers are in the back of the book.

I have enjoyed reading the real life Major League Baseball scenarios and testing my working knowledge of the rules. This is great bathroom reading material and many of them transport me back in time to when the scenario really happened. I found this very enjoyable and great to leave out in the living room for others to pick up and enjoy.
