The Baseball Field Guide: Baseball is a very well-designed sport. Now its rulebook can be, too.

Very nice. Thanks for pointing that out. For me, the key will be if they get "ground rule double" correct. The image rich website is a pain though. "The authors of the Baseball Field Guide are accomplished information designers." Say what?

In their defence, they did say "information designers" and not "accessibility experts". Sigh.

I actually have a copy of this on my coffee table so i can explain things to my fiancee when we watch games. It does a great job illustrating things that can be tricky to describe.

Very nice looking book. I never knew the baseball itself had that high a variability in size and weight.

I just got this for a birthday present, last night. Totally sweet. I'm hitting up Miller Park on Tuesday, and I'm looking forward to having this resource available for my 9-year-old to browse through as she watches the game.
