Mike Attiyeh, semi-finalist in the annual trivia contest of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR), has assembled a unique collection of over 300 in-depth questions on topics as challenging as the game itself. From accomplishments on the field to anecdotes from the dugout, from baseball's earliest days to the 2001 major league season, Attiyeh presents an assortment of questions, including trivia, matching, fill-in-the-blanks, true or false, and fill-in-the-lineup. The quizzes are complemented by Did You Know? sections, which offer hundreds more facts, figures, and stats. Those up to the task can take the Managerial Challenge : two full seasons of 162 questions. Answer enough correctly and qualify for the postseason and more rounds of play-off and World Series - caliber posers. Answer too few correctly and it's back to the minors!
