'Essentials of Professional Baseball' debuts at Chester County Book Company

12/12/2013 05:44PM, Published by ACL, Categories: In Print, Arts+Entertainment


Publisher Norman Mawby and 16 of his friends have collaborated on a book on the essentials of professional baseball. Mawby’s friends include a Hall of Fame writer, the Phillie Phanatic, writers, authors and others interested in the sport of baseball.

“The book has taken several years to compile, write and edit,” Mawby said. “Every minute has been great fun and I think those interested in baseball will be fascinated with the inside look at what goes into staging a professional baseball game.”

“Balls, Bats and More: Essentials of Professional Baseball” makes its debut on Dec. 18 at the Chester County Book Company (967 Paoli Pike, West Chester) at 7 p.m. Mawby and all of the writers are expected to be on hand to sign copies of the book. The 253-page book, with 84 color photographs, was published by Mawby Publishing Group and sells for $34.95.

The authors include Michael Fortney of Chester County Book Company, reporters Jim Salisbury and Michael Rellahan, Hall of Fame writer Paul Hagen, Phillie Phanatic Tom Burgoyne, and author Bruce Mowday.

The team of writers, who are also baseball enthusiasts, provide details and stories regarding the use of professional baseball essentials. These range from balls, bats and gloves to field standards, scorecards, speed guns, video coaching and more.
