The New Baseball Bible  Dan Schlossberg, Foreword
by Jay Johnstone, and Preface by Alan Schwarz
(Published 2017-Sports Publishing)


For fans of baseball trivia, this updated version of The New
Baseball Bible, first published as The Baseball Catalog in
1980 and selected as a Book-of-the-Month Club alternate,
is sure to provide something for everyone, regardless of
team allegiance. The book covers the following topics:
beginnings of baseball, rules and records, umpires, how to
play the game (i.e., strategy), equipment, ballparks, famous
faces (i.e., Hank Aaron vs. Babe Ruth), managers,
executives, trades, the media, big moments in history, the
language of baseball, superstitions and traditions, spring
training, today’s game, and much more. Veteran sportswriter
Dan Schlossberg weaves in facts, figures, and famous
quotes, discusses strategy, and provides stats and images—
many of them never previously published elsewhere.
