Coming down the pike, part two

A couple of months ago, I posted about some of the new books being published in 2018. Since then, Amazon has put up a few more titles. You’re welcome.

In order of release, and sticking to the same restrictions as I have often stated…

  • Image result for September 1918: War, Plague, and the World SeriesThe Science of Baseball: Modeling Bat-Ball Collisions and the Flight of the Ball, by A. Terry Bahill (Springer)
  • The Zobrist Family: Look What God Can Do, by Tom Zobrist and Ben Zobrist (Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.)
  • Baseball Prospectus 2018

  • The Chicago Tribune Book of the Chicago White Sox: A Decade-by-Decade History, by Chicago Tribune Staff
  • The Baseball Fan’s Treasury of Quotations: Wisdom from the Legends of America’s Favorite Pasttime (sic; not off to a great start if you can misspell the title) (Hatherleigh Press)
  • The Baseball Glove: History, Material, Meaning, and Value, by David Jenemann (Routledge; This one weighs in at an amazing $150 for a 120-page book)
  • Baseball Cop, by Anonymous (Hachette Books; including it here simply because there’s no information on this one at all. Is it fiction? Non-fiction? YA? Who knows?)
  • Astroball: How a Gang of Outsiders Went Beyond Stats to Win the World Series, by Ben Reiter (Crown Archetype; I don’t know about you, but I’m getting a little faux-Moneyball fatigue here)
  • September 1918: War, Plague, and the World Series, by Skip Desjardin (Regnery History)
