I’m reading …

In my attempt to reach my 2010 Book Challenge goal, I’m currently reading:

Watching Baseball Smarter:  A Professional Fan’s Guide for Beginners, Semi-Experts, and Deeply Serious Geeks. – by Zack Hample

I already love baseball and the New York Yankees. I’m hoping this book will teach me all the things I would know if I had grown up with the game as part of my history, heritage and culture… if, I had first gone to the ball park at a young age with someone who had known & loved the game for years and was keen to pass the tradition on. For example:

 1. What is the infield fly rule?

 2. What is a pitcher’s earned run average?

3. Why the groin scratching?

4. What do they REALLY talk about around the pitchers mound?

And the Holy Grail:

5. Could I actually learn to keep score?

That’s a lot to cram into a book, but I’ll be happy if after reading it I look less like a clueless if quirky British chick who doesn’t know what she’s talking about.  

Already on the reading list this year: 

Twelve Babies on a Bike (Diary of a Pupil Midwife) – Dot May Dunn

American on Purpose – by Craig Furguson.
