Easy to understand

This is a great and simple audio book that almost anyone can understand. This is great to listen if you have a kid that is about to get into baseball. I believe it is good for your children to at least somewhat understand what baseball is before playing it and this book helps out with that.

The perfect book for anyone that loves baseball!

I bought this book for my niece's birthday. She absolutely loves the sport and wants to play baseball instead of softball so she can compete with the boys. I also have an interest in baseball, so while I did buy the book for her, I also had a listen for myself. I loved learning about all the fun facts and records I did not know about. To me, it's fun to learn about things you don't know about, and this is the perfect book for when you have nothing to do and just want to learn new things about baseball. My niece loves the book and so do I. Great book for anyone with an interest in baseball!

Great for educating kids!

I was intrigued to continue listening to this book to learn the game and history of baseball.The author explained the game of baseball very well. Extremely simple to understand the way it is explained. I found it very interesting to learn what “you’re killin me smalls” means because I’ve been saying that phrase for the majority of my life and have never known what it meant! Great book for those interested in the game of baseball.

A fitting gift for Baseball fans!

I got this on a whim for my buddy's kid who's really into baseball. My friend said that his son couldn't stop listening to it!

So I decided to listen to it myself and loved it! There's so much history in this sport and so many amazing records.

Highly recommended for all baseball fans and their kids!

Worth every penny

One of our family's favorite times have been around baseball so we listened to this book together on a ride to visit their grandma. My kids were so excited about it that I don't think we've had a smoother ride. And I learned a few things a long the way.

A fantastic guide for kiddos and adults

History of Baseball for kids is a fantastic listen. I'm not the biggest fan of the sport, but I have many friends who play and usually find myself questioning everything that is happening on the field when I watch their games. This listen is way more complete and fun to listen to than Googling rules. I also enjoyed the parts that discuss some history of the sport. A good listen for both kids and adults.
