    The Ultimate Baseball Statistics Resource

    The Bill James 2003 Handbook goes above and beyond previous publications which were devised in conjunction with baseball guru Bill James. This book provides readers not only with normal baseball statistics, but much much more as well. Just a few of these extra sections include: 1) rating scales and statistics of all Major League Baseball stadiums, 2) statistics of every Major League hitter broken down into at bats against left-handed and right-handed pitchers, 3) statistics of every Major League pitcher against left-handed and right-handed batters, 4) enough leader boards to cover just about every possible pitching and hitting statistic (for example: best batting average against fastballs; # of pitches seen per plate appearance; best % of throwing out baserunners by catchers; batting average with bases loaded, best average in 1st and 2nd half of season, FOR PITCHERS: highest # of batters faced, run support per 9 IP, homeruns allowed, % of pitches in the strike zone, 'quality starts', K/BB ratio, # of double plays induced, fastest average fastball speed in MPH, etc.) The leader boards go on and on. In all, there are 18 pages of all kinds of statistical leaders like these. One of my favorite sections of the book is the page dedicated to career assessments. This section gives a % rate of the chances certain players will reach different milestones at some point in their careers. Did you know there is a 24% chance that Barry Bonds will hit 800 homeruns in his career? These are a few of the many extensive parts of this book. Bill James and the staff at Baseball Info Solutions (the company that provided all of the statisical data) have certainly outdone themselves this time. I look forward to reading this book for many years to come.
