The Neyer/James Guide to Pitchers: An Historical Compendium of Pitching, Pitchers, and Pitchesby Bill James
Synopses & Reviews
Pitchers, the pitches they throw, and how they throw them — these days it's the stuff of constant scrutiny, but there's never been anything like a comprehensive source for such information. That's what preeminent baseball analyst Bill James and ESPN.com baseball columnist Rob Neyer realized over lunch more than a dozen years ago. Since then, they've been compiling the centerpiece of this book, the "Pitcher Census," which lists specific information for nearly two thousand pitchers, ranging throughout the history of professional baseball. The Guide also offers:
The Neyer/James Guide to Pitchers is about understanding pitchers, and baseball's action always starts with the pitchers. It's also about entertaining debates and having a great deal of fun with the history of a game that obsesses so many.
Preeminent baseball analyst James and ESPN.com baseball columnist Neyer collaborate on the definitive guide to pitching throughout baseball history. 25 photos.
