5.0 von 5 Sternen Become the ultimate baseball fan.
Ready to go to the next level of baseball fandom? This book fills in the gaps of what you already know (or what you THINK you already know) and what you really want to know about the game. A great comprehensive guide including essential strategy and terminology. Clearly stated with nice graphics and an index, as well as relevant anecdotes and photos to illustrate...

1.0 von 5 Sternen OK for those unacquainted with the game
If you know little about how baseball "works", this book is an excellent introduction. However, if you've played organized ball at Little League or above, you will discover nothing new about the game.

4.0 von 5 Sternen It's a steal (sorry)., 26. Oktober 1998

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Baseball Fan's Companion: How to Master the Subtleties of the World's Most Complex Team Sport and Learn to Watch the Game Like an Expert (Taschenbuch)
I am English and before I read this book I thought Baseball was just a sluggers game. I now recognise it for what it is ie probably the game with the widest possible range of appeal, from the jock in the bar to the professor at uni. And yes I now realise the Picther wins the games. This was a great intro for me and I am now searching for more complex material.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A top-notch comprehensive guide, 20. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Baseball Fan's Companion: How to Master the Subtleties of the World's Most Complex Team Sport and Learn to Watch the Game Like an Expert (Taschenbuch)
This is a book that badly needed to be written, and written well. Many people who watch the game on a regular basis - even relatively hard-core fans - do not necessarily know everything they think they do. Bakalar's talent lies in expressing complicated and arcane baseball minutiae concisely. For example, most respectable fans know what a balk is. Sort of. We know basically what it entails, and we can slog through the legalese in the rule book to figure it out. Bakalar sums the rule up neatly and advises the reader how to spot a balk for fun and profit. He also advises how to watch players away from the ball, and how they move in certain circumstances, how to watch the coaches and managers and how information flows between players, the dugout and the coaches' boxes.
Bakalar also brings an understated dry wit to all of his topics, and covers on-the-field details of how to defend in a possible hit-and-run situation with the same depth and tenacity as the history of Major League labor relations.
This book is probably a bit much for an absolute neophyte, but handy for almost everyone else and might even contain a few surprises or revelations for the hoariest old baseball sage.

4.0 von 5 Sternen This Book Made Me a Fan of the Game Again, 14. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Baseball Fan's Companion: How to Master the Subtleties of the World's Most Complex Team Sport and Learn to Watch the Game Like an Expert (Taschenbuch)
Although I played baseball every day as a kid and was a major league fan, as I grew older I stopped watching the game and became a fan of the other 3 major pro sports. I found watching baseball to be a bore. However, reading this book opened my eyes to baseball and made me a fan once again.
If you are a baseball nut, there may not be much to learn from this book (but you might be surprised). For everyone else, this witty, fun to read treatment of the game's rules, strategy and history can teach you what you need to know to appreciate the game. It teaches you the subtleties of the game, what to watch for and why. The tone is completely irreverent and the author does not take himself or the game too seriously. When I was done reading this book, I realized that the game is not boring at all if you know what to watch for. I now enjoy watching baseball, even on TV where the stock camera angles don't show all the action away from the ball. And thanks to this book, I now know that half the game is played away from the ball.
This book delivers on the promise in it's title. What more can you ask?

This is an excellent summary of virtually all the in's & out's of one of the simplest, yet at the same time, most complex games in the world. No fan, player, coach, or spectator should venture to the ballpark without having read this book. Guaranteed to make you look and sound like an expert in no time -- sure to increase your enjoyment of baseball 100 fold. If you buy only one baseball book, make this the one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding, 8. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Baseball Fan's Companion: How to Master the Subtleties of the World's Most Complex Team Sport and Learn to Watch the Game Like an Expert (Taschenbuch)
This book is GREAT! I'm a long-time baseball fan, and I watch every game I can. I disagree with anybody who thinks only the novice can learn something from this book. Obviously if you're an expert, you don't need to learn how to watch baseball like an expert. For the rest of us -- from novice to reasonably well-informed -- this book has much to offer.
I've learned a lot more about the game, and my enjoyment of baseball has increased.
Very readable, well written.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent book for Babe Ruth and AAU coaches, 1. April 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Baseball Fan's Companion: How to Master the Subtleties of the World's Most Complex Team Sport and Learn to Watch the Game Like an Expert (Taschenbuch)
As a manager and coach of a Babe Ruth team I found that this book fills in many of the gaps in my knowledge base. There are numerous anecdotes that are both amusing and useful; many can be passed on to your players. I now know why most stadiums face northeast and the origin of the term "southpaw". Great trivia; will make you look like a master even though you may be a rookie. If you think you know everything, read this book and you will probably learn something new.
