This handsome guide to the language of baseball decodes
the amusing, clever phrases that pepper commentary
about the sport. Packed with witty explanations of everything
from “duster” and “rubber arm” to “up the elevator,”
this ballpark lexicon plays on a nostalgic love for the national
pastime while covering ground from baseball’s beginnings
to today. This humorous mix of definitions and anecdotes
is the perfect gift for both lifelong baseball fans and rookies
working up the ranks.
