About the Author:

Paul Dickson is the author of several bestselling books, including Baseball's Greatest Quotations, The Hidden Language of Baseball, and The Joy of Keeping Score. He lives in Garrett Park, Maryland.

Review:

A must-have for everyone who seeks to understand the spirit of America and, most especially, our politics: you’ll learn why an easy question is a 'softball,' a tricky one, a 'curve ball,' and why sometimes we may have to 'play hardball.' We want leaders who 'can step up to the plate,' free of 'screwball' ideas from 'out of left field.' You will learn from this book and you will treasure this book, just as I have. It is an invaluable American thesaurus. 
(Mark Shields )

This grand book is truly a baseball lover's dream come true. From the first to the last page, it provides an enjoyable experience for readers to treasure. Of special note are the handsome presentation, adequate type size, and editorial care taken with photos and layout that makes the book accessible without compromising comprehensiveness. An essential guide to America's pastime.  (Library Journal )

If you’re a baseball fan and . . . you’re curious about the etymology of the phrase out in the left field or you need a refresher on the infield fly rule. Well for 20 years, the authority, the baseball Bible, if you will, has been The Dickson Baseball Dictionary.  (Melissa Block, All Things Considered )

Dickson’s discursive dictionary ... a delight for former sandlot players, lexical scholars and members of the hot-stove league.  (William Safire - The New York Times Magazine )

A wonderful companion volume. . . enough to last a fan through a 162-game season and the playoffs.  ... What a treasure to have at hand with a long season ahead.  (David Broder - The Washington Post )

This book is very cool.  (Rachel Maddow on The Rachel Maddow Show, April 8, 2009 )

This magnificent volume will make the perfect gift for diehard fans.  (Vick Mickunas - The Dayton Daily News )

Baseball-loving dads need this book now. It's the perfect gift any time, but to receive it at the start of baseball season—well, it doesn't get any better than that. (Marilyn Crain - Baltimore Examiner )
