Everyone knows that baseball is a game of intricate regulations, but it turns out to be even more complicated than we realize. What truly governs the Major League game is a set of unwritten rules, some of which are openly discussed (dona€™t steal a base with a big lead late in the game), and some of which only a minority of players are even aware of (dona€™t cross between the catcher and the pitcher on the way to the battera€™s box). In The Baseball Codes, old-timers and all-time greats share their insights into the gamea€™s most halloweda€”and least knowna€”traditions. For the learned and the casual baseball fan alike, the result is illuminating and thoroughly entertaining. At the heart of this book are incredible and often hilarious stories involving national heroes (like Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays) and notorious headhunters (like Bob Gibson and Don Drysdale) in a century-long series of confrontations over respect, honor, and the soul of the game. With The Baseball Codes, we see for the first time the game as ita€™s actually played, through the eyes of the players on the field. With rollicking stories from the past and new perspectives on baseballa€™s informal rulebook, The Baseball Codes is a must for every fan. From the Trade Paperback edition.A cab drives up and out stepped Nancy, as pretty as a picture. Satchel jumps up and gets the bellman, goes out and gets Nancy, takes her stuff upstairs, and gets all situated. As soon as they get through, theya#39;re going to be coming back down.
