KIRKUS REVIEW

A lively pepper game, satisfyingly filled with anecdotes, which in its detailed concern with the ""know-how"" of actual play, makes its primary appeal to the sandlot amateur. There are some brief words about the popularity of the national game, the rule book, umpires, coaches, managers, and hot stove controversies, but the reader-fan will turn to the specific hints about position play -- a chapter treats each position. And after the hints, some star candids and a whirlwind resume of the glory trail to the big leagues for those with hopes. Breezy, man-to-man.
