The 34-Ton Bat : <b>An unorthodox history of baseball told through the enthralling stories of the game's objects, equipment, and characters.</b><br /> <br /> No sport embraces its wild history quite like baseball, especially in memorabilia and objects. Sure, there are baseball cards and team pennants. But there are also huge balls, giant bats, peanuts, cracker jacks, eyeblack, and more, each with a backstory you have to read to believe. In THE 34-TON BAT, <i>Sports Illustrated</i> writer Steve Rushin tells the real, unvarnished story of baseball through the lens of all the things that make it the game that it is.<br /> <br /> Rushin weaves these rich stories--from ballpark pipe organs played by malevolent organists to backed up toilets at Ebbets Field--together in their order of importance (from most to least) for an entertaining and compulsive read, glowing with a deep passion for America's Pastime. The perfect holiday gift for casual fans and serious collectors alike, THE 34-TON BAT is a true heavy hitter.<br />
