How To Play Baseball - Inscribed by Al Campanis - LA Dodgers Al Campanis 1954, E. P. Dutton and Company, NY No edition stated This is an uncommon book, and a curious edition because the references in the forward are Brooklyn Dodgers, the copyright is 1954, yet the covers reference Los Angeles, and has a blurb from Ron Fairly who played in Chavez Ravine several years after the stadium opened. Nicely inscribed by Al Campanis. Al Campanis was in the Dodger organization for decades, and wrote this book while he was director of Scouting. Approx. 5x8 inches, in very good condition. It is a manual based on the Dodgers' spring training camp. A handbook of teaching techniques and playing practices- for those actively engaged in this sport. Types of pitchers- their aptitudes and limitations (control, stance, etc.); catching; infield and outfield play; the defensive game- and the offensive aspects which involve batting, bunting, base running, sliding; signals; clothing and equipment; the qualifications and role of the coach and the manager- all this will warm up the starting player with sound stratagems and practical principles, illustrated with instruction pictures in line by Tex Blaisdell.Domestic: Flat-rate of $12.00 to anywhere within the contiguous U.S.International: Foreign shipping rates are determined by destination.Location: This item ships from New York.
