During these difficult times, when baseball is on indefinite hiatus, we need every distraction we can get. Williams’ book just may provide a few desperately-needed hours of diversion for baseball-starved fans in York County, and beyond.

Williams goes “back to basics” in using traditional baseball statistical categories. He brings to life engaging reflections on baseball players and personalities, teams, and seasons as a way of stoking our imaginations and giving us some new perspectives. Throughout, “nostalgia reigns” as we remember—or are introduced—to forgotten or “unknown” players who had a significance we didn’t realize. A series of great photos conclude each chapter and add an additional, personal dimension to each of Williams’ presentations.

Quotes from baseball classic writings and interviews, recreations of personalities and events, and summaries that offer bigger-picture thinking about the sport and its players craft essays that often will prove inviting even to those with minimal interest in baseball statistics or history—although it’s the avid fan who will best appreciate these numerical surveys of baseball history.
