A grand slam of a book. The sequel to the bestselling Baseball’s Greatest Insults, with hilarious put-downs and outrageous wisecracks about America’s national pastime. There are no lyrical passages here, no fond reminiscences about childhood games, no tributes to "inspiring" players. Too much real stuff has happened since Kevin Nelson collected Baseball's Greatest Insults in 1984. This hilarious all-star review reveals how the players, managers, umpires, owners, and the sports media really feel about one another.

This book profiles forty major league ballplayers who engineered remarkable comebacks to salvage fading careers. Details of each comeback is provided along with a summary of the player’s career. The comeback players range from Hall of Famers like Ted Williams and Stan Musial; to near-greats like Tommy John and Luis Tiant; to journeyman performers like George McQuinn and Tony Cuccinello. In the absence of statistical standards to evaluate or even define comebacks, the selection of the top comeback players was based on the following criteria: historical significance, uniqueness, dramatic content, degree of difficulty, and the player’s overall reputation and standing.

Baseball and law have intersected since the primordial days. In 1791, a Pittsfield, Massachusetts, ordinance prohibited ball playing near the town’s meeting house. Ball games on Sundays were barred by a Pennsylvania statute in 1794. In 2015, a federal court held that baseball’s exemption from antitrust laws applied to franchise relocations. Another court overturned the conviction of Barry Bonds for obstruction of justice. A third denied a request by rooftop entrepreneurs to enjoin the construction of a massive video screen at Wrigley Field. This exhaustive chronology traces the effects the law has had on the national pastime, both pro and con, on and off the field, from the use of copyright to protect not only equipment but also “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” to frequent litigation between players and owners over contracts and the reserve clause. The stories of lawyers like Kenesaw Mountain Landis and Branch Rickey are entertainingly instructive.

AT BAT—WITH BILL STERN Baseball is a game rooted deep in the heart of America. I’ve loved it ever since I was a kid old enough to yell: “Take Me Out to the Ball Game!” As long as I can remember, I’ve been hearing stories of baseball...fascinating tales of fabulous heroes from a land where the sun always shines and men never grow old...curious legends that grew stranger with age...yarns that have been handed down with the years as treasured lore. As I grew older, and fate cast me in the rôle of a radio sports reporter and storyteller, I’ve been fortunate to meet many of the heroes, old and new—Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, Connie Mack, Grover Cleveland Alexander, Tris Speaker, Leo Durocher, Ted Williams, Bobby Feller and Joe DiMaggio, to name but a handful who have paraded before my microphone. And each in his way has enriched my collection of diamond stories. Of the countless stories I’ve heard from baseball men, I’ve treasured a number to hold, keep and remember. However, a storyteller who has been sharing his most interesting stories with millions of people finds it difficult to be miserly. Hence, I’ve chosen my favorites and offer them in print to all my fans for a generous dose of the romance, the glamour, the color, the thrills, the drama, the comedy, and the nostalgia that are all part of this game called baseball. Maybe I’ll score with some and get shut out on others but here they are just as I treasure them in my sports memory book—my favorite baseball stories.
