SUMMARY

"[A] smart and energetic collection of essays on baseball statistics...CURVE BALL, with its scatterplots, formulas and graphs, isn't for everyone. One table lists the "binomial probabilities for number of home runs hit in 90 at-bats with a home-run probability of .1." Still, hard-core fans will find its mission refreshing. CURVE BALL doesn't pay the usual misty-eyed homage to baseball's traditions and conventional wisdom. Rather it tests whether baseball's accepted measurements stand up to scrutiny....[It] makes clear how pleasurable it can be, and arguably how important, to view the great American game with real precision."Albert, Jim is the author of 'Curve Ball Baseball, Statistics, and the Role of Chance in the Game' with ISBN 9780387001937 and ISBN 038700193X.
