9780811858533: How to Cheat in Sports: Professional Tricks Exposed!

It's no secret that pro athletes cheat. But how exactly do they do it? Original interviews with former professional athletes and coaches reveal step-by-step instructions and technical drawings on how to throw a spitball, become an unblockable linebacker, foul a jumpshooter without getting caught, and other ways to gain an advantage over opponents. Hilarious accounts from insiders place these trade secrets in context, divulging what really happens in baseball, football, basketball, NASCAR, hockey, and even bowling, horseshoes, and kickball. When athletes say they give 110%, How to Cheat in Sports explains the extra 10%.

Review:

AMERICAN PROFILE MAGAZINE
Not that you would ever try any of these deceptions and dupes compiled by nationally syndicated sports columnist Ostler. But you'll sure have fun and learn more than enough to get you in trouble reading about the many ways the pros throw illegal pitches, become unblockable linebackers, modify NASCAR racers, force a basketball foul and sneak by with dozens of other deliciously dirty tricks.
