The only book ever to win both the Seymour Medal and the Casey Award as the best baseball book of the year, Peter Morris’s magisterial encyclopedia of the national pastime will surprise, delight, and educate even the most knowledgeable fan. With its thousand-odd entries, A Game of Inches illuminates the origins of items ranging from catcher’s masks to hook slides to intentional walks to baseball’s reserve clause. Now with new material and completely redesigned in a one-volume paperback, the book remains endlessly fascinating, impeccably researched, and engagingly written.
