Why is baseball such a great subject for a Bathroom Reader? Because it's steeped in history and tradition, it's rife with scandals and controversy, and most of the men that dedicate their life to it are just a little bitweird. Uncle John's spirited take on the game takes you deep into that history to paint a detailed picture of where the game came from and where it may be going. You'll go behind the scenes at spring training, listen in on pitcher's mound conferences, and meet the players, coaches, fans, and broadcasters who make this the greatest game in the world! Swing for the fences as you read about
