by Chris Williams

Non-Fiction: Bsaeball. 152 Pages Print. Sunberry Press (April 21, 2020)

Kindle and Paperback

The author provided a copy of the book for an honest opinion.

When you read the book, you realize a great deal of research and analysis went into its making. There are a few good stories about players, as the title indicates, but there is an overwhelming amount of stats packed into the few chapters. I think that’s an overwhelming amount for me. For a baseball fanatic, and I use that word in a positive manner, this would be right up their alley.

The stories and stats included are from the early 1900s, until the new millennium. There are names I’ve never heard of and I’m surprised, considering names and situations they’re attached to.

I’m not going to give away the stories and the statistics, unlike some other reviews. There are comparisons between players as well as times. And even I could understand the significance. I’m not a baseball novice by any means, I’m just not an avid fan these days. That’s why I say this is more for someone looking to get the details they might not find elsewhere. Because the more you read, the more you know.

RECOMMENDED TO

Avid baseball fans.

People who enjoy all things history.

Those who like quick reads with trivia.
