From School Library Journal:

Grade 5 Up-- Here's a title that will be of interest to sports-minded readers who are interested in interpreting the standings and box scores that appear in almost every daily newspaper. The bulk of the book is devoted to looking at statistics related to baseball, basketball, and football, while also taking a look at hockey and tennis. The myriad numbers, abbreviations, and symbols that are used to condense sports information are explained, as are the ways in which statistics such as earned run averages (baseball), shooting percentages (basketball), and quarterback ratings (football) are compiled. While the book is aimed at a strictly defined audience and isn't something one would tend to pick up for leisure reading, the information is clearly presented in an orderly fashion. Actual box scores and standings from college and professional sports are used to illustrate points. Most terms are explained in context; there is no glossary. For serious sports fans. --Tom S. Hurlburt, La Crosse Public Library,
