Our old pal Jeff Fletcher of FanHouse offers the latest review of The Baseball Codes, offering this analysis: “The Baseball Codes provides just what you’d expect . . . In entertaining detail, hundreds of examples to show you how those who play the game believe it should be played.”
It’d be easy for a skeptic to dismiss the positivity as homer-ism between friends, but Fletcher provides a built-in caveat: “I wouldn’t be recommending a book I didn’t like, even if I knew the guys who wrote it. I’m not that nice of a person.”
He takes the time to break down the book far more than most reviews, offering detailed analysis on much of its contents. For those wondering what might be found within its pages, this review offers a great many answers.
