Weaponized Baseball

One of the most intriguing titles I’ve ever seen! … Hundreds of books have bee written about baseball, but never one that has revealed things about geopolitics!
Scott Sloan ─ radio host, Cincinnati's WLW 700 AM

Baseball fans should really check this out  (Weaponized Baseball). It is fun … and will definitely make you ask more than once, how was that able to really happen?

Gregg Kersey ─ MLB.com book reviewer

[Weaponized Baseball is] Like pulling up a bar stool and losing yourself in a fascinating conversation with the guy at the end of the bar. A few hours later you can’t believe the time has gone, but will remember the stories always! Another great read from Scott A. Rowan.

Weaponized Baseball:
Declassified, Withheld Stories Reveal Baseball's Hidden Role in
Geopolitics,
International Military Action,
Mental Manipulation,
&
Mass Distraction

by Scott A. Rowan

Some sports are more than just games. From The Big Lie to the Civil War to even the Afterlife and beyond, Weaponized Baseball by sports historian Scott A. Rowan, takes sports fans on a mind-expanding journey unlike any sports or history book ever written. Discover the true, real-life stories behind benchmark moments in global history that are not taught in classrooms nor found in most American textbooks.

Baseball becomes our guide through civilization, revealing hundreds of hidden stories about how the sport altered world politics, helped build nations, caused revolutions, led to wars, ended battles, and, when the fighting was over, baseball became the tool of ambassadors and a medium of unspoken dialogue between nations, sparking covert espionage and savage revenge American news agencies didn’t report.

Spanning billions of years and revealing baseall-connected history on six continents, Weaponized Baseball packs hundreds of untold  stories into 55 chapters of page-turning fun, exposing one sport’s clandestine connection to, among other things:

• Gen. MacArthur’s history-making military deception
• TwoWhite House scandals: Watergate & Teapot Dome
• The Parsley Massacre & the bloodiest team owner ever
• The “Korean Nixon” coup and his massacre coverup
• The Last Stand of Gen. George Custer
• Adolf Hitler’s baseball record
• Benito Mussolini’s soldiers in Tennessee
• Cuba’s on-going victory over the United States
The Great Escape and the survival of WWII POWs

This book is not fiction—100 percent of these stories are true. Pain-stakingly researched, these stories are the facts that most teachers don’t teach and politicians wouldn’t want you to know about if they could stop it.

You will never look at sports the same way again. 

SCOTT A. ROWAN is a pioneer in educational sports, uncovering factual moments in global history that were altered by professional sports and its teams, players, executives, and moments. Using sports as a way to engage readers, Scott reveals mind-blowing stories of absolute fact that will stupefy any sports fan, win bar bets and turn sports from being just a form of entertainment into a way to discover more about our world. He is the author of three books, including his previous educational sports title, The Cubs Quotient: How the Chicago Cubs Changed the World.
