This exhilarating account skips the unforgettable athletic achievements, heroic performers, and exhilarating moments that remind fans of everything they love about sports and honest competition and gives the real skinny on baseball's unknown history. Author Robert Schnakenberg takes readers through a decidedly snarky trip through the game's rich history of buffoonery, thuggery, fashion missteps, ballpark promotions gone awry, batboys with metals claws for hands, afros, mustaches, mistresses, overzealous mascots, existence-of-dinosaurs deniers, indelible baseball-themed candy bars, wife-swapping, and hundreds of other unbelievable-but-true aspects of America's national pastime.

From the Back Cover:

When was the eephus pitch invented? How big was Oscar Gamble's afro? What big-league players have appeared on The Simpsons? For years, baseball fans have searched for answers to these and other questions about the most bizarre and colorful aspects of the game's history. Until no, they've had few places to turn, but now the wait is over. The Underground Baseball Encyclopedia is the intelligent fan's one-stop guide to the "secret history" of baseball
