Contents Cheating for beginniners : the underhanded but not illegal -- The illegal but cute -- Thrown off the varsity team -- Cheating our way into the sunset.
Summary In this lively tour through baseball's underhanded history, you will learn how to cork a bat, steal signs, hurl a spitball, throw a World Series, and win at any cost! You'll also see the dirty little secrets of the game's greatest manipulators: John McGraw, Billy Martin, Gaylord Perry, Sammy Sosa, and yes, even Barry Bonds. You'll delight in a hilarious examination of the Black Sox scandal, baseball's original sin. And in the end you'll come to understand that cheating is as much a part of baseball as pine tar and pinch hitters. And it's here to stay.
