Ernest J. Lanigan was the nephew of Sporting News founder Al Spink and one of three men in his immediate family to gain acclaim as a newspaperman. As sports editor for the New York Press and official scorer for a handful of World Series, he was the premier statistician of his day. Lanigan compiled the first baseball encyclopedia in 1922, and it is reprinted here with each of its twelve annual supplements. As the original publisher advertised on the book’s title page, it “[c]omprises a review of Professional Baseball, the history of all Major League Clubs, playing records and unique events, the batting, pitching and base running champions, World’s Series’ statistics and a carefully arranged alphabetical list of the records of more than 3500 Major League ball players, a feature never before attempted in print.”

About the Author:

In addition to serving as sports editor of the New York Post and Cleveland Leader, Ernest J. Lanigan wrote for The Sporting News and Baseball Magazine, worked as secretary and information director for the International League, and served as curator of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

Review:

"One of the best but least-heralded developments in the recent history of baseball literature was the inauguration of the McFarland Historical Baseball Library in 2003"--I>Spitball; "invaluable McFarland Historical Baseball Library series"--Edward Achorn, The Providence Journal.
