Here's the perfect leisure-time and take-along book for baseball fans: a compendium of challenging quizzes, crossword puzzles, rules interpretation problems, brain teasers, humorous anecdotes, cartoons, and eye-opening statistical charts, all about baseball and all drawn from more than sixty years of the most popular baseball publication in America, Baseball Digest. Tumbling from its pages are the stories of old-time stars like Ruth, Feller, DiMaggio, and Williams as well as such recent luminaries as Cal Ripken, Nolan Ryan, Ken Griffey, Jr., and Derek Jeter. Trivia buffs will be challenged by questions such as What manager has been ejected from the most games? What pitchers have recorded three wins in one World Series? What St. Louis Cardinal hit two grand slams in one inning?
