BASEBALL LINGO by Zander Hollander


Email this review


For the fan who understands the game of baseball but is out in left field when it comes to terminology, the easy-going definitions in this glossary combine history and incident, fact and humor to interpret the dialect of the dugout. A respectable baseball education, even for the initiated, can be acquired from reading through these terms: names of players, explanations of strategy, and record achievements are all included, and the vocabulary contains lingo esoteric enough to stump an expert, along with all the basics. A nice light companion for an afternoon of spectator sport with a slangy announcer.
