The Baseball Fanbook: Everything You Need to Know to Become a Hardball Know-It-All is perfect for any young baseball fan wanting to learn facts and trivia to wow and impress their friends. The Baseball Fanbook is geared towards ages 8 years old and older. So perfect for third grade and up.
Inside the Fanbook your child will learn about fun trivia, unique lingo, and illustrated behind-the-skills how-tos. Chapters include Team Tidbits (salient baseball facts about every MLB team), Think Like a Manager (essential strategies to understand), He Reminds Me Of (compares current players to legendary greats of America’s favorite pastime), and much more!
This is the second in the series of Fanbooks, styled after the Sports Illustrated Kids: The Football Fanbook, the Baseball Fanbook is modeled in the same format. It’s filled with images of baseball heroes from the past. The pages look a little more antiqued and are glossy due to the images. So it looks like a traditional book from the outside but when you open the pages it looks more like a graphic novel due to the glossy pictures.
Each of the 30 teams from the MLB (Major League Baseball) has a few pages dedicated to them showcasing the history of the team of how they started to their accomplishments over the years. There is also a spot for learning how many times each team has made it to the World Series and if they won or lost. There’s lots of baseball history and facts for your child to memorize and impress their friends with.
The Sports Illustrated Kids: The Baseball Fanbook is available at your local bookstore or online.
