Synopsis: The Sports Encyclopedia: Baseball 2003 covers the history of every player, every team, and every season from 1902 through 2002, with detailed statistics and text summaries, as well as full coverage of this year’s exciting pennant race.
-Which team became the first in history to come back from a 3–1 deficit to win the World Series?
-Who was the only player to pinch-hit a World Series homerun?
-Who became the first to manage five straight pennant winners, and in what years did he do it?
-What 1970s team won a pennant with only one player hitting more than twenty homers, no player driving in eighty runs, no player stealing even ten bases, no player hitting .300, and only one pitcher winning more than fifteen games?
The answers to these and thousands of other baseball questions can be found in this fully up-to-date, fact-filled reference book.
Review: Statistics are to baseball as nails are to carpentry: they define, inform, and hold the game together. When the teams fly south for spring training, fans, eager to sort through and argue over the numbers, flock to the sports shelves for the statistics. The Sports Encyclopedia has what baseball aficionados want. From 1901 through 1997, the reference supplies updated and revised lifetime numbers for every player, plus seasonal summaries of each team's performance. In addition, there are details of every playoff and World Series game ever played, profiles of every no-hitter since 1901, updated stats on RBIs, on-base percentages, and fielding, plus classic baseball legends and intriguing trivia. As salaries and sports politics get murky, it's refreshing to surround yourself with pages and pages of solid, quantitative information.
