9781492241751: The Rules Abide: The Thinking Fan's Guide to Baseball Rules (With History, Humor and a Few Big Words)

Every baseball player, coach and fan should know the rules of their beloved game, but there’s just one problem, the rule book is an intolerable read that often raises as many questions as it answers. As a student of the game, and more recently an official, Jim set out to reconstruct the rules of baseball and explain the theory behind them in a logical and fun way, as the game unfolds around the diamond; illustrated with history, game situations and personal observations. If that makes you think “I get it, baseball for dum-dums”, you couldn’t be more wrong. An ode to the national pastime, that armchair enthusiasts will enjoy, it will also educate and entertain the many players, coaches, parents and officials involved in the serious, and sometimes not-so-serious, business of baseball in America. From little league to the pros, the game remains the same. Baseball endures, and the rules abide!
