Thorn, editor of The National Pastime, and journalist Holway join in a salute to pitchers, ``that sensitive caste of egomaniacs.'' They trace the evolution of pitching through changes in rules, equipment, and player physique. With an often overwhelming array of statistical analyses culled from many sourcesthey give their picks of the leaders of the past and present big leagues. They also rate ballparks, managers, catchers, and coaches. A cross between The Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract (LJ 1/86) and Martin Quigley's The Crooked Pitch (5/1/84), this will appeal to pitching students and fans of statistics as well as their libraries. Morey Berger, Monmouth Cty. Lib., Manalapan, N.J.
