Stathead Baseball: How Data Changed the Sport

In pro baseball today, it’s good to be a stathead. Managers use stats to decide who should be in the lineup each game, where fielders should be positioned, and when to signal for a bunt or a steal. Players use stats to prepare for games and to get an edge from the first pitch to the final out. And sports reporters rely on data to explain the game. Today’s baseball fans, who always want to be in the know, get more out of the action by joining the ranks of the statheads.

"Don’t let the name of this series fool readers—it’s not just a bunch of record books, but a thoughtful set of titles that consider the importance and influence of statistics in sports. Each volume effectively describes how stats are simultaneously amazing and deceiving—players in every sport are guilty of putting up big numbers but not producing any wins. . . .Libraries looking to bolster connections between math and athletics will want to make purchasing this series a priority." - School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
