More than any other sport, baseball produces trivia, conversation starters, and topics to argue about. Everything in this hefty volume of famous names and astonishing numbers is an absolute fact, and now you can test your memory with stats (who hit the most triples, listed by each position), history (what managers were fired while their teams were in first place?), and curios (home run leaders, listed by state of birth). For those who truly love the game and its data, there are plenty of superlatives here, like "teenagers hitting grand slams," alongside cringe-inducing lowlights: pitchers going winless the next season after throwing a no-hitter.
