About this title


Baseball by the Numbers is the ultimate reference for baseball numerology. Carefully compiled from widely scattered sources, many of which are obscure or difficult to obtain, it is a massive work that lists over 50,000 players, their teams, and their uniform numbers from the 1930s through the 1990s. A chronological listing by team includes every number used by the team, by year, and the player who wore that number. An alphabetical index lists players, their correlating teams, years, and numbers. Finally, a numerical index by team identifies each player, his number, and the years he wore it.

Recommended for baseball fanatics everywhere, as well as for school, public, and college libraries.

Mark Stang, a member of the Society of American Baseball Research (SABR), received the 1992 SABR Macmillan award for his research on Major League uniform numbers. Linda Harkness is a senior research scientist at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) and an avid Braves fan.
