Synopsis

Who is Baseball's Greatest Pitcher? by Jeff Kisseloff

Clements, Maddox, Koufax, Gibson? who is baseball's greatest pitcher? All across America, in school cafeterias, on ball-fields, in front of TVs, and while clicking digital games, fans battle over eras and strike outs, winning percentages and perfect games. Finally here is the book that will --- give them more fuel for their debates. At the same time it teaches how to make historical comparisons, and shows how the game has changed over the years. Journalist and sportswriter Jeff Kisseloff gives readers the facts on 37 of baseball's best, along with an introduction that discusses the importance of control, balls & strikes, the mound, delivery, the zone, the baseball, types of pitchers, relief pitchers, and the designated hitter. Statistics are given for each pitcher's record, including Won/Lost, complete games, innings pitched, strikeouts vs. bats on balls, hits & runs, shutouts, MVPs and Cy Young awards.
