A fantastic and far-flung compilation of stats, figures, and little-known nuggets about our national pastime

An addictive read, sure to spark conversation wherever baseball is spoken, The Baseball Maniac's Almanac is part reference, part trivia, part brain teaser--and absolutely the greatest, most unusual and thorough compendium of baseball stats and facts ever compiled-- all verfied for accuracy by the Baseball Hall of Fame. Renowned sportswriter Bert Sugar, with his trademark tough-guy swagger, presents thousands of fascinating lists, tables, data, and stimulating facts about:

  • Individual players and teams
  • Managers Player relatives
  • The Hall of Fame
  • Annual awards
  • The World Series
  • All-Star Games
  • A list of the all-time statistical leaders for all all the major league teams PLUS: A truly unforgettable "miscellany" section answers such mind-boggling questions as, "Which major-leaguers have palindromic surnames?" and "Which players born under each zodiac sign have hit the most career home runs?"

Bert Sugar
is one of the most recognized sportswriters in history, making numerous appearances on television and in feature films. Over the course of his 50-plus-year career, he has authored over a dozen books on baseball, and his knowledge of our national pastime is encyclopedic. He lives in Chappaqua, New York.
