Baseball as a Second Language
Last summer I published a short guide to the game of baseball, illustrated with photographs and decorated with quotations from newspapers using baseball terminology metaphorically. This year I decided the world need an edition specifically oriented toward the 2012 elections, so visitors from abroad can learn about politics and baseball simultaneously. It is amazing how nearly every baseball term has gotten used in the last couple of years to signify something that one of the presidential candidates has done. Available now from Lulu for $9.99; it will work its way over to Amazon eventually.
