3.0 out of 5 stars Not Shakespeare, but it has its moments., August 12, 2011
This review is from: The Baseball: Stunts, Scandals, and Secrets Beneath the Stitches (Paperback)
Written like an extremely passionate sophomore in high school research report, this book feels like cut and paste was used extensively to detail a lot of the history of the baseball itself, but it was nice to read the crazy history anyways. There is some good stuff about the "Top Secret" Rawlings Factory and an exhaustive, if not exhausting description of how to get a baseball when you go to the game.

Unfortunately, it all boils down to just being OBSESSED with these $8 orbs to the point that you are willing to dedicate your life to begging and making yourself crazy deciding where to position yourself for the 7 hours you are at the ballpark - - after all, we learn that most balls can be shagged in the three hours before game time - and it never hurts to stay after and beg either.

Regardless, there is some interesting historical content for the "more than casual" baseball fan despite the low budget writing style and major league cribbing from other sources.
