Finally, Sports by the Numbers (TM) has tackled Major League baseball!
After enjoying New York Yankees: An Interactive Guide to the World of Sports I eagerly awaited MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: An Interactive Guide to the World of Sports. The book was worth the wait as the authors did not disappoint.
Keeping the same winning formula from New York Yankees this book encompasses the entire sport of baseball with facts and figures from America's pastime. From Cy Young and his award winning career to modern day achievements, from the Bronx Bombers to the Braves Dynasty, this book has it all.
The book makes for fascinating reading as each number from 1 to 1000 is characterized by a significant statistic. But not only does it include numbers (as in Sports by the Numbers -the authors trade marked series of books) but it also has photos, stories and trivia that will bring you back to this book, time and time again. Some of the numbers have expanded information at their website where additional reading material, audio and video clips, and more can be found. An extra bonus!
I found myself picking it up often and each time wondering what would be behind the numbers I picked.
What a great gift for anyone interested in the history, numbers and pageantry of Major League Baseball. This is a must in any baseball fans library
