Can a Dead Man Strike Out?: Offbeat Baseball Questions and Their Improbable Answers by Mark S Halfon

Fascinating vignettes that provide the true accounts behind baseballs most unbelievable circumstances fill this engaging collection of questions and narratives from every period in the history of Americas favorite pastime. The legendary feats of such stars as Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, and Christy Mathewson accompany the unlikely achievements of Ernie Shore and Hippo Vaugh. Questions such as Can a pitcher have more shutouts than wins? and Can a runner be credited with a stolen base and caught stealing on the same play? are answered with anecdotal tales from baseballs past. The answer to Who was the first outfielder to throw out three batters at home plate in one game? tells the story of `Dummy Hoy, a deaf and mute player whose disability may have led umpires to use hand and arm gestures when calling balls and strikes. Baseball buffs and die-hard fans will find rare stories and offbeat scenarios in this entertaining approach to baseball trivia.
