Bryson and Baseball

Posted by Word Camel on February 19, 2002

I heard through the grapevine of the Bill Bryson fans that his father, BB senior, wrote a book about the languge of baseball. It's long out of print and I've not been able to find it in the library or on the web - though admittedly I've not searched exhaustively. I was wondering if any one here knows the book. I'd like to track it down and read it. Does anyone know the reference? I fear I may have it wrong. Does anyone know of any other books on the same theme. The Yankees have reported for Spring training and I too feel I should be gearing up.
