The discipline of folklore is the basis for this study of the verbal expressions that are used by baseball players during games. The analysis of the personal interaction that occurs within the structure of the game provides a deeper understanding of the ethos of our national game and of American culture itself. This study is aimed at both the professional folklorist, in its broad scope of analysis and interpretation, and the baseball fan who realizes that there is much more to the game than just runs, hits, and errors.

Great companies stumble and fall when they lose it. Highfliers crash when a competitor notices they don't have it. Start-ups shut down if they can't develop it. "It" is a strategy so powerful and an execution-driven mindset so relentless that companies use it to gain more than just competitive advantage--they achieve an industry dominance that is virtually unassailable and that competitors often try to explain away as unfair. In their "hardball manifesto," authors George Stalk and Rob Lachenauer of the leading strategy consulting firm The Boston Consulting Group show how hardball competitors can build or maintain an enviable competitive edge by pursuing one or more of the classic "hardball strategies": unleash massive and overwhelming force, exploit anomalies, devastate profit sanctuaries, raise competitors' costs, and break compromises. Based on 25 years of experience advising and observing a range of companies, the authors argue that hardball competitors can gain extreme competitive advantage--neutralizing, marginalizing, or even destroying competitors--without violating their contracts with customers or employees and without breaking the rules. A clear-eyed paean to the timeless strategies that have driven the world's winning companies, Hardball Strategy redefines and reinterprets the meaning of competition for a new generation of business players. George Stalk and Rob Lachenauer are directors of The Boston Consulting Group. Stalk is the author of Competing Against Time, the classic work on time-based competition.

When Bowie Kuhn became baseball commissioner in 1969, attendance at games was declining, labor disputes were flaring, and many teams were suffering from poor management and marketing. Fifteen years later, when Kuhn retired, the sport was flourishing. Kuhn had overseen tumultuous changes issuing from a challenge to the reserve clause, the 1981 strike, escalated salaries, free agency, and his controversial rulings on matters ranging from gambling to broadcasting. In Hardball Kuhn reveals how the decisions were made and forthrightly challenges his detractors. The former commissioner offers many colorful anecdotes and strong opinions about baseball's greatest legends from Jackie Robinson to Howard Cosell. In a new afterword to this Bison Books edition, Bowie Kuhn, who now resides both in Jacksonville, Florida, and on Long Island, gives his take on the state of baseball since his retirement as commissioner in 1984.

Ron Rosenberg had just come from an Arizona federal prison and had some shocking news for Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms agent Bob Bringston. Bobs suspicions were confirmed that federal Drug Enforcement Administration Director Victor Marsh was only selectively enforcing the drug laws. Marsh was taking payments from large drug importers in exchange for secure access to US soil. Bob resolved to do whatever it took to expose this immense abuse of power. He recruited lawyers Emily Sanchez and Ron Rosenberg in his pursuit of the truth and found the help of friends and even strangers along the way. The blood in Hardball is as much art as it is scientific and realistic. The sex is detailed and profound. It goes far beyond the physical. Baseball is a continuing theme throughout. Hardball is not just about some massive government conspiracy. It is a legal thriller that boils down to three courageous and quite creative people determined to do what is right.

THE USA TODAY BESTSELLER Vivian's a pretty mild-mannered person. Even with a busload of hyperactive fourth graders going to a baseball signing, she's patient and kind. Even when she meets Dash Wallace...major league legend and star of her hottest daydreams...she keeps her cool. Kind of. Mostly. It was fine. Then his glove is missing and he accuses one of those fourth graders of being a thief. You do not come after one of Vivian's kids. She will defend them to the death. Dash suddenly finds himself with an apology on his lips and an unexplainable attraction to a woman who's just not his type. But he keeps his cool. Kind of. Mostly. It's fine until the regular season, when he's going to travel with the team. He has rituals. Processes. Routines.

Vivian lays down the law, and Dash has to decide if he can win games with her, or live without her.
