U.S.A.: Pantheon. Hardcover. 0375424695 Stated First Edition, with the full number-line. No marks or damage from past owners, not a former library book, not a remainder or book club, not clipped, hardcover. Hilarious, surprising, and vastly entertaining,The Baseball Codesuncovers the hidden rules of baseball. Everyone knows that baseball is a game of complicated rules, but it turns out to be even more complex than we realize. InThe Baseball Codes,Jason Turbow and Michael Duca take us behind the scenes of the great American pastime. Players talk about the game as they never have before, breaking the code of secrecy that surrounds so much of baseball,... both on the field and in the clubhouse. We learn why pitchers sometimes do retaliate when one of their teammates is hit by a pitch and other times let it go. We hear about the subtle forms of payback that occur when a player violates the rules out of ignorance instead of disrespect. We find out why cheating is acceptable (but getting caught at cheating is not), and how off-field tensions can get worked out on the diamond. These tacit rules are illuminated with oftenincredible stories about everyone from national heroes Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays to notorious headhunters Bob Gibson and Don Drysdale to true eccentrics like Rickey Henderson and Dock Ellis (who once pitched a no-hitter while on LSD). The Baseball Codesis an absolute must for every fan of the game. All books shipped within 24 hours with U.S. Postal Service Delivery Confirmation, each order is packaged in a new box with bubble wrap, and always your satisfaction is guaranteed. . Fine. 2010. 1st Edition.
