It's back. Following on the cheers of baseball fans for The Baseball Entertainer, Robert Kuenster has compiled-no, not Son of Baseball Entertainer, but The Baseball Entertainer #2.
It's an all-new compendium of challenging quizzes, crossword puzzles, brain teasers, rules challenges, humorous anecdotes, and eye-opening statistical charts-all about baseball and all drawn from more than sixty years of the most popular baseball publication in America, Baseball Digest. You won't find a better leisure-time and take-along book for baseball fans. Tumbling from its pages are the stories of old-time stars like Cobb, Gehrig, Mathewson, and Musial as well as such recent luminaries as Willie Mays, Johnny Bench, Albert Pujols, and Hank Aaron. Trivia buffs will be challenged by questions like: What two players hit five home runs in one World Series? Who is the oldest pitcher (43 years, 59 days) to win a league ERA title? What batter holds the record for most strikeouts (223) in a single season?
In a handy paperback format, The Baseball Entertainer #2 is guaranteed pleasure for passengers on planes, trains, and automobiles, and a great little gift any time of year.
