                                                              Most people assume that the infatuation with baseball statistics is a byproduct of the information age, a phenomenon that blossomed only after the arrival of Bill James and computers in the 1980s. In this book, Alan Schwarz debunks that assumption. He provides the first history of baseball statistics, showing how baseball and its numbers have been inseparable ever since the pastime's birth in 1845. He tells the history of this obsession through the lives of the people who felt it most: Henry...

                                                                One of America's best known sportswriters, Deford chronicles how a friendship between two towering figures in baseball helped make the sport a national pastime. At the turn of the century, every American man wanted to be pitcher Christy Mathewson, who was clean-cut and rarely spoke a negative word about anyone. New York Giants manager John McGraw, nicknamed the Little Napoleon, was ferocious. When McGraw joined the Giants in 1902, the team was coming off its worst season ever, yet within three...
