Explain away your bad at-bats and imperfect pitches—and have your friends laugh at the same time!

In Baseball's Best Excuses, author Joshua Shifrin takes a witty approach in helping baseball players make sense of their worst days on the diamond. The next time a player leads his or her team in defeat, he or she can always explain the woeful performance with “The guy batting after me is terrible.” Or after a bad pitching outing, players might try to explain the mishap with, “I couldn’t control my fastball."

Shifrin has crafted loads of funny—but all-too-real—excuses for pros and amateurs alike. Examples include:
  • The pitcher was taking too much time between pitches.
  • The fans behind home plate were distracting.
  • I’m not used to the dimensions in this park.
  • The manager had me playing out of position.
  • And many more!
Whether you want to motivate the amateur in your life or laugh away embarrassing mistakes in your own game, Baseball's Best Excuses is a must-read. Complete with laugh-out-loud full-color cartoons, this book makes for the perfect gift.
