Summary

From Yogi Berra's rib-tickling "Berraisms" to Walt Whitman's "Baseball is our game -- the American game," this gift book drives home the fact that baseball is a game of many interpretations. Wisecracking, philosophical, nostalgic, and above all, entertaining, hundreds of quips and observations by players, managers, authors, and other enthusiasts cover every aspect of our national pastime.
