Was a run ever scored that went unnoticed by everyone on both teams--and the official scorer, too? Can a runner from first base be tagged out stealing second when the batter is walked? Fans of the Great American Pastime want to know! This second edition of Baseball Brain Teasers features 60 challenging rules situations that occurred in real-life Major League games, with each incident broken into three parts. First comes the problem, with all the basic details; then a description of the actual game where the play happened; and finally an explanation of the correct call. Readers can just enjoy the entertaining stories--or the baseball-savvy can test their knowledge and see if they're smarter than the professionals who were actually involved.

From his first year in the majors, George Herman "Babe" Ruth knew he could profit from celebrity. Babe Ruth Cigars in 1915 marked his first attempt to cash in. Traded to the Yankees in 1920, he soon signed with Christy Walsh, baseball's first publicity agent. Walsh realized that stories of great deeds in sports were a commodity, and in 1921 sold Ruth's ghostwritten byline to a newspaper syndicate for $15,000 ($187,000 today). Ruth hit home runs while Walsh's writers made him a hero, crafting his public image as a lovable scalawag. Were the stories true? It didn't matter--they sold. Many survive but have never been scrutinized until now. Drawing on primary sources, this book examines the stories, separating exaggerated facts from clear falsehoods. This book traces Ruth's ascendance as the first great media-created superstar and celebrity product endorser.
