The Fielding Bibleby John Dewan
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"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
"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
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.
