Summer is here and baseball is in full swing. The greatest game has the written rules of the umpires and the unwritten code of the players. Turbow's book sheds light on the Code using hilarious anecdotes of players past and present; tracking the evolution of the Baseball's Code to the modern era. This book had me laughing at, and learning about, some of my favorite players and managers.
