Publisher Comments:

The Groundbreaking Guide to the Most Underappreciated Part of the Game!

Previously available exclusively to Major League Baseball teams, John Dewan and Baseball Info Solutions reveal their revolutionary approach to fielding analysis. In the process, they will completely change the entire perception of fielding statistics in Major League Baseball.

  • Why is Adam Everett the best defensive shortstop in baseball?
  • Should Derek Jeter have won two Gold Gloves?
  • Do the Phillies know what they have in Aaron Rowand?
  • Who are the most intimidating outfielders to run on?
Find the answers to these and countless other questions inside the pages of The Fielding Bible — the most comprehensive analysis of fielding statistics ever compiled for Major League Baseball players. The Fielding Bible includes:
  • In-Depth Analysis by Position — How do MLB players really stack up against each other defensively? An innovative new Plus/Minus System analyzes players position-by-position and provides top-to-bottom rankings.
  • Where Hits Landed — This allows a team to compare their defense point-by-point against other MLB teams.
  • Other Special Features — Uniquely designed analysis to determine the best corner infield defenders against the bunt, the best middle infielders on the double play and the best outfield throwing arms. Plus Bill James?s brand new Relative Range Factors and John Dewan?s newly designed Zone Ratings!

Review:

"In some ways, The Fielding Bible is like getting [Bill] James or the Hirdt Brothers books in the '80s.... Just go get it and think.... There is so much to this book." Peter Gammons, ESPN.com

Review:

"John Dewan?s Plus/Minus System is the best statistical system I?ve ever seen for evaluating the defensive abilities of MLB players." Hal Richman, Strat-O-Matic Game Company

Synopsis:

It's easy to understand why fans love big hitters like Barry Bonds and Albert Pujols. It's also relatively easy to measure their success as hitters. A comprehensive fielding analysis, by comparison, has never been available to the average fan. For the first time ever, that information is now contained in The Fielding Bible, the most comprehensive analysis of fielding statistics ever compiled for Major League Baseball players.
