    'OFF WE GO TO THE BALL GAME!!'

    Are you a baseball aficionado or fanatic who is interested in statistics and want to know how to load this data into a database for analysis? If you are, then this book is for you! Author Joseph Adler, has done an outstanding job of writing a book about how to watch, research, and understand baseball. Adler, begins by showing you how to watch and score baseball games, and how to find some simple baseball data on the Web. Then, the author shows you where to get databases of career statistics and introduces some tools that you¿ll find helpful in working with this data. Next, he shows you how to get data on current baseball games. The author then introduces R and shows you a lot of cool tricks that you can use to analyze baseball data with R. He continues by covering a few of the most popular formulas and a few favorites. Then, the author discusses many baseball problems, some classic and some new. Finally, he comprises a few random topics that didn¿t fit anywhere else: fantasy baseball, widgets, and other sports. This most excellent book is an instruction manual for the free baseball databases. More importantly, this book is a cookbook for baseball research.
