Unlike most other sports books, Baseball Through the Eyes of 30 Major Leaguers is not written from an author’s perspective. The editors of this unique book weave together the observations, experiences and knowledge detailed by many of the game’s biggest stars about their sport. The players participating in this timely insider’s book were interviewed over a 12-month period about how they play the game and what subtleties they see as professionals.
The professional who play baseball are not casual fans. They’re passionate about their craft. To stay at the top of the sport and participate as only one of 25 players on a team, every player looks for mental and physical advantages. They watch competitors on other teams—searching out nuances and skills that can help them succeed. At the highest level, baseball is an extraordinarily competitive sport where inches count and the difference between winning and losing might be a microsecond in timing or judgment.
For the readers of Baseball Through the Eyes of 30 Major Leaguers, each chapter speaks plainly about the skills required to play each position on the field. But for the 30 Major Leaguers interviewed for this book, it’s much more: It’s about teamwork, mental strength, knowledge, dedication, skills, friendships, respect and a love of the game.
Readers of Baseball Through the Eyes of 30 Major Leaguers learn about the game from the viewpoints of the game’s professionals. Why is second base known as the “keystone position” and third base termed “the hot corner”? Why is the centerfielder considered the “general” of the outfield? Why is batting such a mental challenge? How has conditioning and strength training changed the game? Why do some pitchers prefer to be starters while others relish middle relief or closer roles?
Baseball through the Eyes of 30 Major Leaguers answers these questions by bringing readers onto the playing field and inside the dugout.
