Diehard hardball fans know the stat-saturated game is much more than a simple tally of winners and losers, and this unique breakdown of its complex rules makes the labyrinthine regulations easy for even casual observers to understand. Using plays from actual MLB matchups to illustrate the rules in action, it challenges readers to “make the call” then goes into colorful detail, poring over every single baseball directive that’s ever been subject to interpretation or contention from Babe Ruth into the modern era.
