Editorial Reviews

Review

"Baltimore Orioles IQ challenges even the most ardent fanatic with 200 trivia questions spanning the history of the team going back to the first incarnation of the ball club at the turn of the 20th century all the way to this past season.  Buy the book and be prepared to dominate your next Baltimore Orioles trivia night."
- Jon Shepherd, Camden Depot

"Baltimore Orioles IQ tells a great story of how Baltimore became a special place in the hearts and minds of baseball fans."
- Domenic A. Vadala, Senior Editor, BirdsWatcher.com

"This trivia book doesn't just ask questions, it provides history to the reader. That makes it an interesting read even without the bonus of getting to answer Orioles-related questions. The trivia doesn't limit itself to the past, either, as questions go right up to the end of the 2013 season."
- Stacey Folkemer, Editor-in-Chief, CamdenChat.com

"Baltimore Orioles IQ is an innovative book that allows readers to refresh themselves on the history of the Orioles, while engaging in thought-provoking questions. As Cal Sr. once said, "It's not practice that makes perfect ... but perfect practice that makes perfect." Baltimore Orioles IQ is the perfect practice tool for passionate Orioles fans."
- Tucker Blair, Owner and Executive Editor, Orioles-Nation.com

"A trip down memory lane for longtime Orioles fans, filled with interesting trivia that all ages will enjoy. Elliot dives into Baltimore's rich baseball history in a fun, informational read filled with quirky stats and facts sure to stump even the most diehard among us."
- Brittany Ghiroli, MLB.com, Orioles Reporter

I've been something of a closet Orioles fan since getting to watch them in 1982 as a ten-year-old. I saw Earl Weaver go crazy on the home plate umpire and to this day I can still see him kicking the dirt. It was also right at the beginning of Cal Ripken Jr's streak and he became my favorite player. I love trivia, so I decided to grab this book when it popped into my inbox.

It is so addictive because there is such great history in each question. I didn't know a lot of the answers, but it didn't matter. It is a fun and informative read that made me continuously say to myself, "Hey, I kind of remember that!"

If you are an Orioles fan or just a diehard baseball trivia fan, get this book!

Review:
Books on sports trivia can be tricky to review as a reviewer may not know much about the topic and therefore may not know the accuracy of the information as presented. I found this to be my dilemma when a review copy of this book was provided to me by the publisher who requested that I review it. Feeling up to a challenge, I decided to give it a go and also contacted the author in case I had any questions.

While I have not followed the Baltimore Orioles closely so some of the material would not be known to me, I did find that the book had some very good narrative pieces and was organized well. I felt it was clever that the questions were divided up by topics and each topic was an “inning.” For example, the first inning was about numbers worn by Orioles players. There were 20 questions on this topic, with 10 questions asked in the “top of the first” and the other 10 questions asked in the “bottom of the first.” There were 10 such innings for a total of 200 questions. The difficulty of the questions, at least to this serious baseball fan who follows a different team, ranged from fairly easy to having no clue to the answer without searching Google.

Without doing a through fact check on the validity of each question, I did match the answers to the questions I did not know back to the question to at least see if they made sense from what I did know or recall. While this may not a totally accurate way to verify information, I did find it useful in order to get a feel if this was a trivia book that would be useful to baseball fans, especially Orioles fans, and I found it to be that. If I did want more information on a question, I contacted the author who was very responsive and helpful.

I got this as a gift for my husband, who is a huge O's fan. It has a lot of great trivia, and relies heavily on the very first years of Orioles Baseball. You may not know a lot of the answers to the older stuff, but it helps you learn. It is written more like an actual book with trivia questions ending each paragraph. We found it fun to read the paragraphs in an announcer voice. Lol. Overall, this is a nice trivia book for a fan.
