How Baseball Works would appeal to youth who are interested in playing or understanding the game of baseball. It is divided into seven chapters that provide information in short interestingly titled paragraphs. The author has carefully provided key pieces of information in each small section. The information includes tips on training, legends in the sport, techniques for better play, and equipment used in the game. The author uses current information but has not neglected the past and how it has influenced the present game. She provides the reader with a clear explanation of the changes made over the years and the reasons for the changes. The illustrations consist of both photography and computer generated graphics; these are bright, colorful and very useful for the visual learner.
In addition to a concluding index, the book's closing pages include the Rules and Regulations and explanations of the language of baseball.
