Here are the books I have published since I started Baseball Press Books. All are still in print, and for sale. Every month or so, I’ll post this price list for the connivance of new readers, and those I’ve missed on my mailing list. These are some of the best baseball books ever published, and, needles to say, should be in every baseball fan’s library.

I recently purchased "The Early Coast League Statistical Record" and "The Coast League Cyclopedia."

Thanks for the time you took in putting these invaluable resources together! Your hard work is really appreciated.

I am also interested in individual fielding stats for PCL players. Are these stats available?
