Synopsis: Recognized as the authoritative source for baseball statistics, this ninth edition of the encyclopaedia features: the yearly performance of every man who has played or pitched in the major leagues and their single season lifetime records; an alphabetical roster of all major league managers and their records; a chronological listing of teams and team members from 1876 to 1992, including yearly team and player records and league-leading performances; a register of awards and achievements; a listing of all trasdes and free agent acquisitions since 1900; fielding statistics for every player who has ever played in a major league game, from 1876; a home/road performance register which now highlights each team's longest winning and losing streaks during the course of each season; inning-by-inning line scores and summaries of all World Series, League Championship Series, Divisional Playoff Series and All-Star games; Negro League statistics; and a listing of players in the All-American Girls' Professional Baseball League.

Review: No single volume sings the epic saga of the game with quite the rhythms of The Baseball Encyclopedia. Now in its 10th edition, the granddaddy of all sports reference books is, at just over eight pounds and 3000 pages, the National Pastime's weightiest tome. As all-seeing as Homer and Milton, as all-knowing as Shakespeare and Yeats, the encyclopedia finds its poetry in the rhythms of baseball's numbers. Every player--regardless of significance--is present, with all the essential statistics of his career. There are, no doubt, some soulless creatures who may open the encyclopedia and just see page after page of dry, meaningless, numbing data; the rest of us know better: 755, 714, 61, 511, .406, 1.12, and 4,256 are all self-contained dramas filled with tension, and inspiring awe. It is in these stats, and thousands more, that the mysteries of the game begin to reveal themselves.
