"Makes you the smartest kid on the sandlot." -- American Profile (on the first edition)
Baseball Now! celebrates the latest players of America's pastime. This new edition delivers up-to-date profiles of more than 70 stars of the National and American Leagues, which are complemented by more than 100 full-color action photographs.
Fully revised, this edition includes up-to-date coverage of the 2010 regular season, the league playoffs and the World Series. Starring players and winning teams, stragglers and fumblers, all of the highlights, and lowlights, are included.
Baseball Now! takes the reader with Tim Lincecum and Roy Halladay into the late innings, with Jonathan Papelbon and Mariano Rivera getting the team out of a jam, with Derek Jeter and Chase Utley turning a double play, with Torii Hunter and Ichiro Suzuki making a leaping catch on the warning track, and with Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton hitting a walk-off homer.
Baseball Now! is ideal for the fan who wants the stories behind the numbers.
