WILD & WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY: The Baseball Fanbook by Gary Gramling


ABOUT THE BOOK

The next book in the Fanbook series from Sports Illustrated Kids, The Baseball Fanbook has all the nerdy-cool insider knowledge that fans ready for next-level, in-depth stats need to know to impress their friends, family, coaches, and any season ticket holders they may meet. Tailor-made for baseball fanatics ages 8 and up who know the basics of the sport they love, may play it, and are looking to become super fans, this new fanbook is filled with fun trivia, unique lingo, and illustrated behind-the-skills how-to's. Chapters include Team Tidbits (salient baseball facts about every MLB team), Think Like a Manager (essential strategies to understand), He Reminds Me Of (compares current players to legendary greats of America’s favorite pastime), and much more!

REVIEW

The Baseball Fanbook provides a fantastic collection of facts and information about America's national pastime.  Divided into sections the book looks at famous records, obscure facts, skills to master, running a team, player comparisons, team descriptions, and baseball lingo.  The book's design makes it an attractive book indeed for those who love the game.  While I am am not a baseball fan, I still found the book full of interesting information about players, teams, and the game itself.  I learned quite a bit about the game. With lots of photographs, short paragraphs, and infographics this book is bound to be a favorite for baseball lovers.
