Sobre o livro
Super Sluggers, Gold Glovers, and Matchless MVPs is a totally unique baseball trivia book that will spur fans toward becoming not only an expert at answering challenging questions but also at constructing them. Match wits with the father of baseball trivia, David Nemec, a ten-time national baseball trivia champion as he presents 150 baseball stumpers artfully designed to test the depth of the readers knowledge about the game since 1871 including:
Who is the most recent major leaguer to compile 100 or more hits, 20 or more complete games, and 20 or more decisions in the same season? No, the answer is not who you think!
Who is the only pitcher to hurl a minimum of 5,000 career innings and surrender fewer hits per 9 innings than Walter Johnson?
What team had a record of 5262 when the strike shut down the 1994 season but was on track to qualify for postseason play with the lowest winning percentage ever by a division or league first-place finisher?
Every era of baseball history is represented from Cap Anson to Mike Trout, Cy Young to Clayton Kershaw, Ty Cobb to Jose Altuve, Babe Ruth to Giancarlo Stanton. Each question is followed by a string of clues fleshing out a portrait of the player or team involved with each one leading the reader progressively closer to the answer and offering tasty and little known observations about its subject as well as the answer.
Super Sluggers, Gold Glovers, and Matchless MVPs is the ultimate test for knowledgeable baseball fans!
