Produced by The Sporting News, The Official Major League Baseball Fact Book is a treasure trove for baseball fans. Compiling a rather stunning amount of information, it provides a detailed review of the most recent season, a preview of the current season, profiles of current and former baseball stars, a season-by-season review from 1876 to the present, and a section on all-time leaders in various statistical categories. As an example of the book's comprehensiveness, on the page about the Detroit Tigers you'll find the team roster; the season schedule; lists of coaches, scouts, trainers, and physicians; the field dimensions of Comerica Park; ticket information; the director of merchandising, for crying out loud--and a lot more. There's also a complete list of recent transactions, an exhaustive catalog of Hall of Famers, franchise histories, and box scores from memorial games (one of the best parts of the book). Great stuff, and it includes lots of photos. --Andy BoyntonReview:
The Sporting News is the only magazine that has been covering baseball since 1886. For fans of the National Pastime, the annual Sporting News "Fact Book" is an eagerly awaited event. The 1997 Official Major League Baseball Fact Book continues to demonstrate why this annual publication is considered "benchmark publishing" for all major league baseball fans -- and the definitive reference resource for bets, arguments, and discussions. -- Midwest Book Review
