Baseball’s old-timers and all-time greats share their insights into the game’s most hallowed—and least known—traditions in Jason Turbow and Michael Duca’s “grand slam of a book” (The Associated Press) The Baseball Codes, now on sale from Pantheon Books. For the learned and the casual baseball fan alike, here is an illuminating and thoroughly entertaining must have.
“Turbow and Duca have filled a void with this entertaining,
revealing survey of the varied, sometimes inscrutable unwritten rules
that govern the way baseball is played by the pros.”
“The Baseball Codes is a comprehensive, sometimes
hilarious guide to perhaps a misunderstood aspect of our national pastime, and will come in handy should one ever be involved in a beanball war.” —Publishers Weekly
