About This Book
Since the first pitch was thrown, MLB has tracked the performance of every team and player, documented every hit and measured every home run. And while some plays are part of the everyday game, there are moments in baseball when a player's performance reaches a new level of greatness and new records are made. The Major League Baseball Ultimate Book of Records catalogs the game's most remarkable achievements, as well as some of the less traditional and quirky stats that all play a part in the game.
     MLB's team of in-house writers, researchers and historians have scoured the history of the game and written the most accurate, complete and definitive record of baseball stats and achievements. Major League Baseball Ultimate Book of Records documents the absolute best of the best and packs each achievement into this lavishly illustrated book where fans will be treated to never-before-seen photographs of their favourite players. Double-page spreads will show Henderson racing to second base to claim the stolen base record, while another full color spread celebrates Bond's crushing hit that set a new threshold for most home-runs.
     All the records are here, each with an account of events and spectacular photographs that make this truly the most spectacular baseball book ever published.

    The Year of the St. Louis Cardinals

    The Year of the St. Louis Cardinals
    Celebrating the 2011 World Series Champions
    Heading into the 2011 season's final month, the St. Louis Cardinals had no chance to make the postseason - at least, that's what logic indicated. But by the end of October, they were hoisting the World Series trophy, celebrating the franchise's 11th world championship and its second in six years. All it took was a historic comeback in September, in which the Redbirds rallied from an 8.5-game deficit in the Wild Card race, and an incredible run through the postseason to do it. On the backs of Cardinals mainstays Albert Pujols and Chris Carpenter, as well as more recent arrivals like Matt Holliday and Lance Berkman, St. Louis took out the heavily favored Phillies in the National League Division Series before outclassing the division-rival Brewers and overmatching the American League champion Texas Rangers. The Year of the St. Louis Cardinals: Celebrating the 2011 World Series Champions commemorates the Cardinals' thrilling 2011 season, detailing their rise to the top, including a recap of every postseason game they played, regular-season highlights, team history, insider stories, stats and more than 200 photographs. As the only official Major League Baseball World Series championship book, this keepsake is a must-have for any fan of the Cardinals or baseball.
