Using one particular moment in baseball history--a June 10, 1982 game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Baltimore Orioles--Dan Okrent explains the facets of our national pastime that are crucial to its nature but invisible to the uninitiated fan, such as catcher's signals, pitching physiology, club owners' balance sheets, and scores more.
