Baseball is full of colorful characters and silly superstitions, and author Ron Martirano does an excellent job of sharing some of the more entertaining stories in Baseball: Great Records, Weird Happenings, Odd Facts, Amazing Moments & Other Cool Stuff. From Germany Schaefer‘s theft of first base to the epic “you’ve been traded to Japan” prank played on Kyle Kendrick, Martirano covers a wide spectrum of baseball oddities.

Each entry is a quick read, short enough to tackle in between innings while ESPN goes to commercial. Stories are divided into four sections: unusual, magical, painful, and traditional. Readers are sure to learn a few things while being reminded of others. In either case, Martirano presents the events in an accessible and entertaining fashion. Baseball fans young and old will enjoy Baseball: Great Records, Weird Happenings, Odd Facts, Amazing Moments & Other Cool Stuff.
