This book provides 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 that 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?".
