Overview

Why is baseball such a great subject for a Bathroom Reader? Because it’s steeped in history and tradition, it’s rife with scandals and controversy, and most of the men that dedicate their life to it are just a little bit…weird. Uncle John’s spirited take on the game takes you deep into that history to paint a detailed picture of where the game came from and where it may be going. You’ll go behind the scenes at spring training, listen in on pitcher’s mound conferences, and meet the players, coaches, fans, and broadcasters who make this the greatest game in the world! Swing for the fences as you read about…

Minor league mishaps The violent history of umpiring The true story of Lou Gehrig’s heroic rise and tragic fall The man who pitched a no-hitter while tripping on LSD The origins of gloves, baseballs, bats, uniforms, helmets, and more Baseball’s most famous call and how it was saved for posterity The best and worst teams of all time Animals in the outfield The birth of Little League The Abner Doubleday myth And much, much more!
