Baseball from the Broadcast Booth: So You Think You Know Baseball? (Hardcover)
Baseball from the Broadcast Booth is filled with baseball metaphors that various announcers have used throughout the years. Do you know what they all mean? If you think you know baseball, Lee Anderson invites you to test your knowledge of what announcers are conveying when they are calling a game. For instance, do you know the meaning of phrases like: - the pitcher is taking the mound; - ducks on the pond; - he got it all; - toe the rubber; - paint the corner; - he will turn and watch it fly. If you follow baseball, you no doubt know some of these phrases, but you may be surprised by how many you don't know. Some of them, you may never have even heard of. Can you figure them out? Filled with pictures describing each metaphor, you'll find the answers along with a short description of what each phrase means in the back of the book.
