Stat Geek Baseball
, March 2012

I am not a big sports fan and so I am not very familiar with the facts, figures, scores, stats etc. This was a very educational book for me! I wasn't confused at all (which is surprising since I really don't know anything about sports stats) and I have a much better understanding of these things now that I have finished this book. I also liked that the book incorporated why ratings and stats/scores are important to the game of baseball as well as some history about the sport. Don't be deterred from reading this book just because you are not a sports fan ... this book may change your mind!

Great Resource!,
March 2012

Great reference book to have on hand! Abbreviations are clearly written out and easy to find in the book. Extremely neat, clean, easy to follow book. A highly informative reference guide or a great book to get to learn about some of the recent history of baseball. Highly recommend! - 5 Stars.

Entertaining and Informative,
March 2012

This is a great book if you are interested in baseball at all, and is very easy to read even if you don't know much about statistics. It's full of interesting facts and figures, and does a great job explaining what each rating and score is, and why it is important to the game of baseball. I learned a lot about the history of baseball reading this, and the writing style is great for just sitting down and reading - not dry and boring, like you would expect a stats book to be. Highly recommended! - 5 Stars.

Take me out to the ball game..., December 1, 2010

"Stat Geek Baseball, the Best Ever Book 2011" from is a new edition of last year's interesting read. As with anything but especially sports, the "best ever" status can change based off new stat information. This newly revised edition encompasses those numbers available through the end of the 2010 season making it a rather comprehensive guide on this sport. Sports enthusiasts will want to read this one cover to cover to absorb all there is to know on their favorite teams and players, but fear not...the novice is by no means excluded. It can easily be used reference style to pick and choose the areas of the game you wish to learn something more of.

Personally, I'm not the avid fan and yet this book still held my interest. With a little of the old and a lot of the new, a great balance is struck with the information imparted. One baseball book I would certainly recommend to fans of any level, from mere curiosity to all out enthusiasts. There is something for everyone...   Review by Reba G. - 4 Stars.

Baseball Stats FTW!, April 1, 2010

"Stat Geek Baseball, the Best Ever Book" from the folks at is for fans of the sport and even those with novice status. Contained within its pages (as you can guess) are listings of the "best ever" in various categories based off the statistical information provided by the website system. Sound boring? Not really. It may be if it was JUST that, but it is actually a lot more. They don't merely plunk of list down on the page and say here are the top 10 in this field, etc. They explore each list player by player, person by person and give you a little information as to why they were highlighted for that feature. What part of their game helped them make the list, or what year happened to be their best played.....these questions and more are answered in a clear and fun manner making this trip into baseball stat history enjoyable for one and all.

Recommended reading for everyone from the die hard fans of the sport, those just starting out and even those merely seeking a look at the best of the best at a given time. By books end, you can't help but end up humming the familiar bars of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game.....happy reading!  - Review by Reba G. - 4 Stars
