Description

Now in its third edition--a clear guide to the complete rules of baseball

Admit it: Even if you're a diehard fan of our national pastime, sometimes an umpire's call can be a little baffling. And for newer fans, Major League Baseball's nuanced rules--developed and revised over decades--can be downright perplexing.

Now updated throughout with the latest changes, such as the "Buster Posey rule" on collisions at home plate, the Baseball Field Guide explains every rule in plain English:
  • Rules that apply before, during, and after the game
  • Equipment specifications and field requirements
  • Duties of the coaches, managers, and umpires
  • Rules for spectators (yes, they have rules, too )
  • The clearest explanation anywhere of the infamous Infield Fly Rule, and much more
Designed for quick and intuitive searches, this entertaining reference will help you understand every aspect of the game and add to your enjoyment of the sport.
