Dr. Harvey Frommer on Sports

Sports Book Review

The 2006 ESPN Baseball Encyclopedia and More

Facts, figures, factoids, tables, charts, numbers . . .if all of these are your game - you have come to the right place.

"The 2006 ESPN Baseball Encyclopedia" edited by Gary Gilette and Pete Palmer (Sterling Publishing, $24.95, 1760 pages) is a grand slam collection of everything baseball.

Also from Sterling is "All-New Baseball Brainteasers" by Michael Morse ((9.95, 160 pages)  - - a book that has all the questions and all the answers about 60 challenging rules situations that took place in real-life big league baseball  games.

From Acta Sports comes "How Bill James Changes Our View of Baseball" edited by Gregory Augustine Pierce ($19.95, 144 pages), a no holds barred outright bit of homage to James and "The New Ball Game" by Glenn Guzzo ($14.95, 160 pages) a primer on old time baseball stats and several new fangled ones.

"The Bill James Handbook" by Bill James and Baseball Info Solutions
($21.95, 480 pages) is a mother lode of Jamesian baseball knowledge and insights complete with stats, registers, projections - you're going to love it.

And two more from Acta Sports are "The Fielding Bible" by John Dewan and Baseball Info Solutions ($19.95, 241 pages) and "The Hardball Times Baseball Annual"  ($29.95, 352 pages). The usual suspects  cover the usual subject matter and a lot more.
