Arguably the greatest all-around player of all time, Joe DiMaggio also wrote (and McGraw-Hill published in 1948) a paean to the game, titled Baseball for Everyone. For aspiring young players and rabid fans alike, Baseball for Everyone explores the finer points of playing each position, lingers on the pitcher's craft, and dwells on the psychology as well as the mechanics of hitting.
With a foreword by famed baseball writer Peter Golenbock new to this paperback edition, Baseball for Everyone remains a wise and revealing look at the mechanics of America's game from one of its greatest practitioners.

The Baseball Classic
"Great fun and full of vital information."--Washington Times
Baseball for Everyone has much to recommend it to every baseball-minded reader."--New York Times
Joe DiMaggio was arguably the greatest hitter of all time--his 56-game hitting streak, set in 1941, still stands. He was also one of the best centerfielders in baseball history, leading the Yankees to ten World Series titles. No one knew baseball better than Joltin' Joe, and Baseball for Everyone, published at the height of his career in 1948, is a tour of the game with DiMaggio as guide. His timeless observations on pitching, hitting, and the finer points of positional play are made bigger than life with stories of the play and tactics of Hall of Famers Lou Gehrig, Ty Cobb, Ted Williams, Babe Ruth, Pee Wee Reese, and others.
With the reissue of this best-selling classic, a new generation can learn from the best, while those who remember the Yankee Clipper can revisit wonderful memories. Baseball for Everyone is for all who love the game and savor the legends surrounding it.
