Amazon Review ... "This is a book that chronicles some of the most important fielders in baseball history, and the level of statistics detail is amazing. Really glad I could find this, it is a really great addition for every baseball fan. I loved the different rankings of players and there is quite a lot of different metrics and graphs that are really interesting to study and think about. Highly recommended." - 5 Stars

Amazon Review ... "A great read for any baseball fan. I'm not a stat geek by any means, but I was bought this book because I liked its approach and thought I'd get something out of it even as a casual baseball fan. One of the things I like about the book is that it really eases you into the more complex information, covering the history, basic stats, etc. I learned a lot about the evolution of the glove. There's also some fun trivia facts throw in e.g. the cost of a baseball in in 1896. There's an interesting section on the fielding awards that I really enjoyed. There are a lot of charts, graphs, and images that are laid out nicely, so it doesn't get too confusing once you get into the heavy numbers. Overall, a good read for any baseball fan." - 5 Stars.
