School Library Journal - Abby Bussen, Muskeo Public Library (WI)

"Each book in this engaging series describes and explains the uses of statistics in sports games. Stories of current and classic players help readers understand why these statistics are so important. . . .The range of the photos and data will have sports-stats nerds geeking out big-time. This series has the potential to enhance readers’ understanding and appreciation of the topic sports. The math behind the often confounding statistics involved in baseball, once clarified, has the ability to turn fairweather fans into rabid hardball lovers. This series blows away the competition." - School Library Journal
