Author Michael Hermann, president of Wicked Cow Entertainment and The Wiffle Ball Inc.’s brand managers, gives readers an inside look at the most indelible creations of all time: the Wiffle ball. Hermann recounts how in 1953 a down-on-his luck shoe polish salesman and his 13-year-old son concocted the first Wiffle Ball from spare perfume packaging, turning a plastic orb into an American icon. In Wiffle Ball: The Ultimate Guide you’ll learn the science behind the Wiffle ball, and why the ball actually curves. You’ll learn how to throw a sinker, a riser, and a screwball. You’ll see all the great fields. You’ll meet some of Wiffle ball’s most competitive (and yes, professional) players. And best of all, major leaguers and A-list celebrities share their fondest and funniest Wiffle memories. The book is a must for the Wiffle fan in every one of us, and a tribute to the beloved American classic.
