  • The Hall of Fame
  • Annual awards
  • The World Series
  • All-Star Games
  • A list of the all-time statistical leaders for all all the major league teams PLUS: A truly unforgettable "miscellany" section answers such mind-boggling questions as, "Which major-leaguers have palindromic surnames?" and "Which players born under each zodiac sign have hit the most career home runs?"

From the Back Cover:

[FRONT COVER]

"Being a baseball maniac is a condition which cannot be cured--it can only be treated. So take two chapters of Bert Sugar's book--and then call him in the morning."--Bob Costas

[BACK COVER]

The biggest, baddest, and most bizarre compilation of stats, facts, and little-known nuggets about our national pastime

You know your stats backwards and forwards. You can rattle off the batting averages of favorite players and name the winningest pitchers for the past century. You call yourself a baseball maniac, but you haven't come across the likes of Bert Sugar. In this monster encyclopedia, renowned sportswriter Bert Sugar gives you thousands of lists, tables, and fascinating facts about players and teams, managers, the World Series, and much more.

"Aside from his chapeau, Bert Sugar has been best known for his extraordinary knowledge of the squared circle, the prize ring. Now it turns out he also knows more than a bit about the game where the balls are stitched. The Baseball Maniac's Almanac is intriguing and inventive. Where else could you find the names of batting champions who didn't hit a single homer all season, or sluggers with more RBI's than games played, or learn which manager picked up the most victories while at the uncertain helm of the St. Louis Browns? Most baseball numbers books leave me glazed and dazed. This one, like baseball itself, is wonderful fun."--Roger Kahn, author

"Bert Sugar's treasure trove of baseball nuggets belongs not only in Cooperstown but the Library of Congress--or the House of Astrology. Where else can you discover that Willie McCovey has more home runs (521) than any Capricorn ever born?"--Jon Saraceno, USA Today

About the Author:

Bert Sugar is one of the most recognized sportswriters in history, making numerous appearances on television and in feature films. Over the course of his 50-plus-year career, he has authored over a dozen books on baseball, and his knowledge of our national pastime is encyclopedic. He lives in Chappaqua, New York.
