Review:

When taking on a legend, you'd better be daring, you'd better be different, and you'd also better deliver the goods. Total Baseball, the upstart reference for cyberfans, satisfies all those criteria, and then some. Like the older, more established Baseball Encyclopedia, it is a mammoth volume filled with yearly results, awards, detailed post-season and all-star accounts, and the complete career statistics of every major league player. But while the Encyclopedia is basically a book of numbers, Total Baseball also crams in hundreds of pages of words: there are essays on everything baseball. The lineup ranges from the traditional--team histories, the 100 best players, baseball reporting--to the marvelously esoteric--Jewish ballplayers, women and baseball, movies, memorabilia, and poet Donald Hall's provocative analysis of the national significance of "Casey at the Bat." A caveat: the player statistics are crammed so tightly you'll wish Total Baseball included a magnifying glass. Still, squinting is a small price to pay for so big a chunk of baseball heaven.
