Touchdown! These tales from the gridiron will set fans abuzz. Fun, filled with intriguing lore from football history, and engagingly written, they're almost as exciting as the Super Bowl itself. Find out all about the pranksters and one-of-a-kind characters of the game, including Clinton Portis, who liked to wear costumes to his team's weekly press conferences (including a mad scientist wig). Speaking of costumes, hazing the rookies is an integral part of the sport. Just ask Lavelle Hawkins and Cary Williams. They were tied to a goalpost and doused with water, mustard, and ketchup. You'll read about the strange injuries, including Turk Edwards' career-ending injury during the coin toss. You'll cringe reading about how San Francisco 49er Ronnie Lott gave 110%--and his pinky--all for the love of the sport. And you'll bust out laughing when you find out why coach Don Shula once took a shower with an alligator. From the Hardcover edition.

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.

As America's pastime since the mid-1800s, baseball offers the sights, sounds, and even smells that are deeply entrenched in our culture. But for some, the experience can be less sensory. Some, such as Ryan Spaeder and Kevin Reavy, live for baseball statistics. Stats give the game historical context and measurables for past, present, and predictive analysis. Incredible Baseball Stats, newly updated, helps tell unique baseball stories, showcasing extraordinary stats and facts in baseball history, through the 2018 season. For example, in 2015, the Nationals’ Bryce Harper broke out in a major way. He batted .330/.460/.649 with 42 home runs en route to his first MVP Award. It was his fourth MLB season, but he was still younger than NL Rookie of the Year Kris Bryant. He became the youngest player to lead the league in both on-base percentage and homers in the same season since Ty Cobb in 1909. The authors have scoured the records for untold tales and looked at familiar ones with new statistical insights, to create Incredible Baseball Stats, a perfect book for baseball fans from coast to coast. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Sports Publishing imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in sports—books about baseball, pro football, college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, or soccer, we have a book about your sport or your team. Whether you are a New York Yankees fan or hail from Red Sox nation; whether you are a die-hard Green Bay Packers or Dallas Cowboys fan; whether you root for the Kentucky Wildcats, Louisville Cardinals, UCLA Bruins, or Kansas Jayhawks; whether you route for the Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, or Los Angeles Kings; we have a book for you.
