About this Book

The first title devoted to America's national pastime in the new, exciting, and completely original Sports by the Numbers™ series!

THE SPORT: Baseball is our national pastime—and the popularity of the game has never been greater than it is right now. The Sports by the Numbers™ franchise delves into the history of baseball and explores some of its greatest moments, legends, players, and teams in a unique and provocative numerical framework.

THE FORMAT: The presentation created by the authors distinguishes Sports by the Numbers™ from everything else available today. Major League Baseball is composed of ten chapters, each offering one hundred numbered "mini-stories"—facts, anomalies, records, coincidences, and enthralling lore and trivia. Each chapter begins with a stirring Introduction highlighting the many exciting stories detailed in that chapter.

INTERACTIVE: Numerical entries tagged with SBTN-All Star and SBTN-Hall of Fame logos are scattered throughout this book. These logos indicate that more information is available at our website www.sportsbythenumbers.com. Just click on the athletic locker in the bottom right-hand corner of the homepage and access additional reading material, audio and video clips, and more.

Sports by the Numbers™ books are not just for die-hard sports fans, but for every fan and sports history reader who loves sports and wants to know more about their heroes and favorite teams. They will quench any fan's thirst for entertainment and knowledge.
