Ladies: Don't Strike Out This Playoff Season, Learn Baseball 101

Share Article

Tell your man: “Take me out to the ball game” -- and mean it.

Ladies: don’t strike out this fall. Get in to the game with A Woman’s Guide to Baseball, How To Talk His Language (Gildan Audio; September 2006) by Paula Duffy, sports personality and founder of Incidental Contact (, a sports learning site for women, who will teach you the basics of America’s favorite pastime, step-by-step, in just under an hour. In his language, that equates to approximately three innings and/or four beers, fourteen pretzels and two belches later.

What are the telltale signs you may need A Woman’s Guide to Baseball? Does your man plan weekends and evenings around the MLB television schedule? Do you anticipate spending an inordinate amount of ‘quality time’ with yourself during the playoffs and World Series? Does your guy spend more time talking to the ‘tube’ than you? If you’ve answered yes to any of these, then it’s time to quit being a sports widow and learn about balls and strikes.

Besides teaching the basics of the sport, Duffy entertainingly shows women the practical applications of baseball knowledge (aka ‘sports speak’) as it pertains to

success in business, personal relationships, and, of course, romance. Yes ladies, there’s more to baseball than just crotch grabbing, spitting and congratulatory pats on the butt.

“This time of year, many women feel left out with their man glued to the television watching baseball,” says Paula Duffy. “A Woman’s Guide to Baseball is an easy and fun way for women to hit a home run by getting on the couch and in to the game with their favorite guy or someone they’d like to be closer to.”

Batter up!
