From Booklist

2^-4, younger for reading aloud.
Although billed as a joke and riddle book, this is also full of snippets of interesting baseball lore.
For instance, in 1985 Bert Campaneris made baseball history by playing all nine positions--in one game! These brief anecdotes are what set the book above the usual riddle compilations.
Clever pen-and-ink drawings add to the fun.

  •     Cute little book of jokes about baseball. They are definitely directed towards children; however, the adults had a few chuckles from them as well.

  •     Baseball Jokes and Riddles will keep kids of all ages laughing for many hours. Included in this never to be forgotten book is some baseball history, unusual names of some baseball players, goofy bits of baseball trivia, and some delightful cartoon illustrations.
