Synopsis :

With an introduction by Bob Costas of NBC Sports, Out of Left Field is the perfect book for the baseball fan who has read it all.  Jeffrey and Douglas Lyons's three years of research have dug out a diamond mine of fascinating, never-before-seen gems, such as:

Themajor league team that broadcasts all of its games in London
The mother and son who both played pro ball
The .252 hitter who had an entire town named after him
The only big-leaguer directed by Alfred Hitchcock

With a question and answer format, Out of Left Field is the one book that diehard baseball fans will savor from cover to cover.

Review:

This book will help settlle all your baseball bets! A compulsive fan's dream come true, this compendium is full of the most obscure records, coincidences, and general oddities of the great American pastime. Here are a couple of trivia warm-ups: Who is the oldest player to get a hit in the majors? (Minnie Minoso of the White Sox, at age 53.) The first man to bat on television? (The Red's Billy Werber at Ebbets Field in 1939.) The best ballplayer to come out of Prague? (The great Jim Thorpe! However, please note, Thorpe was from Prague, Oklahoma.) Out of Left Field is packed full of countless historical baseball tidbits that the devoted baseball aficionado will find truly priceless.
