Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An addictive read that is sure to spark conversation wherever baseball is spoken, The Baseball Maniacs Almanac is part reference, part trivia, part brain teaser, and absolutely the greatest, most unusual, and thorough compendium of baseball stats and facts ever compiled—all verified for accuracy by the Baseball Hall of Fame. In its pages, renowned sportswriter Bert Randolph Sugar presents thousands of fascinating lists, tables, data, and stimulating facts about:
  • Individual players and teams
  • Managers
  • Player relatives
  • The Hall of Fame
  • Annual awards
  • The World Series
  • All-Star Games
The book also contains a list of the all-time statistical leaders for every major league team as well as a truly unforgettable miscellaneous section that answers such mind-boggling questions as, “Which major-leaguers have palindromic surnames?” and “Which players born under each zodiac sign have hit the most career home runs?”

Synopsis:

Legendary sportswriter Bert Randolph Sugar offers stats, facts, and little-known nuggets about our national pastime.
