Name That Ballplayer

The Ultimate Baseball Quiz Book

Questions and answers about all of your favorite baseball players--newly updated!

Taking a cue from the legendary TV game show Name That Tune, Wayne Stewart's Name That Ballplayer, now newly updated with a bonus section on active players in 2019, is a unique baseball quiz book. This is not just a list of questions followed by the answers. Each question offers the reader three “pitches,” or clues. Guess the identity of the player in question on the first clue and you’ve hit a homer. Guess right after the second clue earns you a double, and if you need all three clues to get the correct answer, award yourself a single. If you swing and miss on all three clues, you’ve struck out. After three outs, add up your score and move on to a new set of clues. Not only are the clues given in "tiers," but the book's chapters run from extremely easy (e.g., identifying the likes of Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron) to much more obscure (where was Mickey Mantle born? what do you remember about Johnny Bench?). Perfect for any baseball fan, regardless of team allegiance!

Wayne Stewart has been a professional sportswriter for more than thirty-five years and has authored thirty books, including Name that Ballplayer, You’ re the Umpire, and The Little Giant Book of Basketball Facts.
