Throwback

A Big-League Catcher Tells How the Game Is Really Played
by Jason Kendall and Lee Judge

 
Ever wonder what’s being said at home plate?
How a team silently communicates?
What goes on in the clubhouse behind closed doors?

America’s pastime has always left fans and amateur players alike yearning for the answers to questions about how pros play the game.

Jason Kendall is an All-Star catcher who has seen just about everything during his years with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Oakland Athletics, Chicago Cubs, Milwaukee Brewers, and Kansas City Royals. He’s a player’s player, a guy with true grit--a throwback to another time with a unique view on the game that so many love.




Reminiscent of such classics as Ball Four and Men at Work, Jason Kendall and sportswriter Lee Judge team up to bring you the fan, player, coach, or curious statistician an insider’s view of the game from a player’s perspective. 

This is a book about pre-game rituals, what to look for when a pitcher warms up between innings, the signs a catcher uses to communicate with the pitcher, and so much more.
