The most unusual baseball facts you'll ever find! Whether they are die-hard baseball fans or casual spectators, readers will be captivated by this collection of fascinating, little-known facts about the game. For example, did you know that the yarn in a single baseball is long enough to nearly reach the top of the Empire State Building? With lots of humorous, colorful illustrations, charts, and graphs, Baseballogy explores such diverse topics as the materials used to make the balls (including fish eyes, once used for the core!) and freak injuries (one player was stabbed by a bat). For real baseball aficionados, there's a section on the physics of hitting the ball, a look at some long-standing records they might not have known about, and explanations of the stats on baseball cards. A Baseball Trivia Quiz at the end of the book lets kids test their knowledge. Entertaining, informative, and highly visual, Baseballogy is the perfect sports book for all kids—especially reluctant boy readers.
