About this title


Explains the basic rules of softball and provides information on players' positions and officials' signals.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5--These introductions to in-line hockey and softball have identical formats. Four short paragraphs dealing with the history of the sport are followed by explanations of 16 rules, a look at the various positions, signals used by umpires and referees, a discussion of sportsmanship, and a single-page glossary of terms. In-line hockey is one of the fastest growing team sports, but little, if anything, has been published about it for children. Softball concentrates on the fast-pitch variance of the sport, though some of the differing rules of slow pitch are mentioned. In both books, full-color illustrations depicting boy and girl athletes accompany the texts. While the writing and illustrations are both quite stiff, the information presented, though limited, is accurate. G. Jacobs McCrory's Softball Rules in Pictures (Perigree, 1992) and Bill Gutman's Softball (Marshall Cavendish, 1990) offer more information for a somewhat older audience. Purchase Mayo's and Sublett's titles for basic information about these sports.
