Not the first baseball statistics book you should own, but a good supplement,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The SABR Baseball List & Record Book: Baseball's Most Fascinating Records and Unusual Statistics (Paperback)
This book contains a lot of statistics that you can't find anywhere else. It may be easy to find out who has, say, the largest number of doubles ever, but in this book you'll find the ranking of the highest ones, going down, for some statistics, to the top 50 or the top 100. You'll also find lists broken down by position, as well as by handedness (lefthanded, righthanded, or switch-hitting). There are also some odd statistics that you'll never find anywhere, such as managers by number of times ejected by an umpire from the game!
You do, of course, have to be a baseball fan, and the sort of baseball fan who relishes looking up all sorts of statistics, to enjoy this book. I am, so I really enjoyed digging into it.

to: bruce gilson..bruce, could you please contact me with an email address...i want to ask you a question re: the 2006 SABR baseball record book...well, heck, i can ask you right here...
is this a yearly publication? the Sporting News stopped printing their annual record book, so i picked up a copy of the SABR book and found it very helpful...i had collected the sporting news guides, record books, and registers since the 30's, and was disappointed that they decided not to continue publishing the Record Book in 2006...
thanks for your help
