“This isn’t the first book to take on the challenge of explaining baseball intricacies, but I’ve never seen it done better. . . . When it comes to producing ‘aha moments’ of baseball enlightenment, the book indeed has a high batting average.” —The Seattle Times

“Hample calls himself an obsessed fan—obsessed in a good way—and the product of his torment is a funny and informative guide for all levels of fans.” —Yankees Magazine

“Engaging. . . . Hample’s book is both deceptive in its simplicity (the basic rules, but also the ten different ways a pitcher can commit a balk) and surprising in its range.” —Fortune
