  • On my second attempt to seek understanding of my childhood obsession with major league baseball I checked out Robert Schankeberg s The Underground Baseball Encyclopedia Much of the same ground that was covered in Big Hair and Plastic Grass the book that was part of my first attempt to understand my chldhood obsession was covered here as well, and it was covered in a similar quick, snarky, Generation ADD style ie, a venerable parade of random, multi tasking soundbite like attempts to appear exper [...]


  • I enjoy talking baseball history, rules, stats, match ups, predictions, etc, just like any baseball fan.But, I absolutely love talking about the Doc Ellis LSD induced no hitter, or the Pirates mascot, the Pirate Parrot, dealing coke to all the players in the 1980s, then becoming a stoolie for the FBI by wearing a wire in his costume.If you enjoy those ridiculous stories too, this is the ideal book It doesnt talk about Steve Carlton s 27 win season, it talks about how he things AIDS was cooked up [...]


  • A must read for any baseball fan I found this book in a Tuesday Morning book clearance section a few years ago and gave it to my hubby for Christmas We made it our library book in other words in the bathroom The I read the I enjoyed It has interesting facts about baseball, players, mascots, owners etc that you will not find in other baseball books Very very entertaining


  • This book is hilarious and great What else can I say about a book that has entries on Strat O Matic Baseball and Jack Kerouac Sample entry on Ty Cobb Crabby, bigoted Hall of Famer who carved out a well deserved reputation as one of the game s archetypal bastards An unreconstructed racist of the old school Southern variety, the so called Georgia Peach set a standard for villainy that no player of his magnitude has ever quite matched.


  • Interesting and clever idea, but is sold short About half the entries deal with supervendors and team mascots, whereas I was hoping for crazy stories of players and managers Still worth the read if you re a baseball fan.


  • Tries to look like something it isn t This book is nothing special and the casual fan won t learn anything he cares about For example, I really don t care about famous peanut vendors About a third of the book focuses on people like that.


  • Awesome Alphabetically arranged list of the most random, odd and interesting facts, stories and people in or related to the game of baseball.4.0 5.0
