Outline ReviewWhether messing around with stick and ball in the street, pitching on the school team, or playing in the Little League World Series, kids have been playing baseball since well before the Civil War. In this big, jam-packed volume, all the ins and outs of America's national pastime are explored, explained, and honored for the benefit of young players. Designed in DK's signature style, with clean, sharp photos and clear descriptions, the highly practical guide will quickly become an everyday favorite for baseball fans. Each two-page spread deals with basics of the game: "Types of throws," "Catching fly balls," "Batting basics," "More pitching tips," "Have fun!" etc. Step-by-step photos show key skills, and tan sidebar boxes give a closer look at a particular skill. Trivia, records, slang terms, and more are found in green boxes, and top Major League baseball stars like Derek Jeter and Mike Piazza offer tips on throwing, game psychology, running, and more. Boys and girls of all ages will be more than ready to play ball after perusing this terrific guide. (Ages 8 and older) --Emilie Coulter
