What are the â€œtools of ignoranceâ€? How did the defensive team â€œsoakâ€ base runners on early baseball diamonds? And what do a white elephant and a â€œDutch bed of tulipsâ€ have to do with the American national pastime, anyway? This Q&A deck of 48 cards is loaded with historical information and useful tidbits of baseball trivia and lore--all of it solidly researched and entertainingly presented. Each cardâ€™s question, posed on the front, is answered on the back. Youâ€™ll find out about the unusual Eephus pitch, gain perspective as to what it takes to call balls and strikes in the big leagues, and learn why the term â€œchin musicâ€ isnâ€™t as soothing as it might initially sound.â€¨â€¨ An around-the-bases education, What Do You Know About Baseball? is as satisfying to the Little Leaguer wondering about the origin of his â€œsouthpawâ€ nickname as it is to adult teams gathering for a post-game salute to the â€œBeer and Whiskey League.â€
