A standard source of first referral, Porter’s multivolume Biographical Dictionary of American Sports now adds a long-awaited revised and expanded edition of the popular 1987 Baseball volume and its supplements. This 3-volume work profiles over 1,450 baseball luminaries, including current stars, former major league players, managers, umpires, executives, and Negro League and All-American Girls Professional Baseball League stars. All entries from earlier volumes are revised and updated, and 477 new figures are added. A handy reference, this comprehensive work provides more biographical information on these baseball professionals than any other reference available.

Contributed by baseball historians, educators, and journalists, each profile highlights biographical data, career records, accomplishments, and honors; discusses the subject’s accomplishments; and provides bibliographic information. These volumes will be an invaluable reference for baseball aficionados and all libraries.
