About The Book
Unlike other baseball statistics books that reveal only information about the numbers players put on the board, this unique take on America’s favorite pastime reveals the little-known facts and nuances behind the numbers players wear on their backs.
In Now Batting, Number…baseball historian Jack Looney delves into every aspect of baseball uniform numbers. Here are topics including „Boyhood Idols“ (players who chose numbers to honor heroes, fathers, grandfathers, and friends), „Birthday Babes“ (players who have worn the same number as their day, month, or year of birth), „Caretakers“ (inside stories on how numbers are distributed and the bartering of numbers among players), and „Early Innings“ (the history of numbering in Major League baseball).
At the center of Now Batting, Number…is a substantial section listing the complete rosters of all thirty Major League teams including each player’s number and position. Other lists include every retired number listed by league and team, every retired number listed by position, and famous players’ numbers and every other player who ever honored them by wearing that number (listed by number).
In a controversial chapter called „Dream Teams,“ player from various eras, who wore the same number durin their careers, are selected to play together on the same Dream Team. Statistics for fifty teams are included. Also included are dozens of some of the toughest, number-related trivia questions that will have even the most knowledgeable fan scratching his or her head.
