The fact that the baseball season is over, by October 4th, need not discourage the sale of this book, which is of major importance for players and coaches, as well as a book for standard use to anyone interested in baseball. The author takes up each position, tells how it should be played, explains the technique of outstanding pitchers, and what makes them outstanding. He goes not only into defensive baseball, but into details on hitting, getting runs by stealing bases, squeeze play, etc. Well written, clear, concise. Plus sale for boys.
