about

This exhilarating account skips the unforgettable athletic achievements, heroic performers, and exhilarating moments that remind fans of everything they love about sports and honest competition and gives the real skinny on baseball's unknown history. Author Robert Schnakenberg takes readers through a decidedly snarky trip through the game's rich history of buffoonery, thuggery, fashion missteps, ballpark promotions gone awry, batboys with metals claws for hands, afros, mustaches, mistresses, overzealous mascots, existence-of-dinosaurs deniers, indelible baseball-themed candy bars, wife-swapping, and hundreds of other unbelievable-but-true aspects of America's national pastime.
