Format: Kindle Edition
While this is a decent read for any Cardinals fan, it sure misrepresents itself. The book claims that the factoids and trivia items are of the "oddball" variety, and while some of them are, the overwhelming majority are not. Some of the items presented are simply re-tellings of no-hitters, one-hitters or record breaking performances, while the rest are notes about which former players were born on or died on which dates. Interesting? Maybe. Oddball? Nope. In addition, the back cover description claims that these are trivia items you won't find in most places, but that's certainly not true. Any book or website on Cardinals history will have these same items.

Perhaps worse than the inaccurate description, though, is the lack of proofreading. The book is full of grammatical and spelling errors. If Snyder presented this information on a free website, I could see its appeal and forgive the errors. However, people are being charged money to read this (assuming they don't get it at a library), and because of that, I think better care should have been taken to fix these errors.

Good idea but poor execution.

If you think you know practically everything about your favorite team - the St Louis Cardinals - think again. John Snyder has compiled this fascinating and quirky chronicle of Cardinals baseball history, with enough "oddball" trivia to amaze and astonish even the most die-hard Cards' fan. For example, Dizzy Dean and Albert Pujols share the same birthday; exactly 70 years apart, and there's really a disease called "rabbit fever", which nearly claimed the life of Enos Slaughter way back in 1939 (sadly, his father died from it).

Snyder provides all sorts of inside information on a host of topics - from blockbuster trades to weird career milestones on some of the franchise's most celebrated, and least celebrated players to ever don a Redbird uniform. It's great stuff; if you love this team, you'll love this terrific history lesson.
