More About The Dickson Baseball Dictionary by Paul Dickson; Skip McAfee
 
 
 
Overview
Hailed as a staggering piece of scholarship (Wall Street Journal) and an indispensable guide to the language of baseball (San Diego Union-Tribune), The Dickson Baseball Dictionary has become an invaluable resource for those who love the game. Drawing on dozens of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century periodicals, as well as contemporary sources, Dickson s brilliant, illuminating definitions trace the earliest appearances of terms both well known and obscure. This edition includes more than 10,000 terms with 18,000 individual entries, and more than 250 photos. This impressively comprehensive (The Nation) book will delight everyone from the youngest fan to the hard-core aficionado."
