Some brief overview of this book

In sports there are lies, damned lies, and statistics. Joe DiMaggio's fifty-six-game hitting streak was magical. The three-point shot is an essential part of NBA basketball.

Babe Ruth shouldn't have attempted to steal second base in the ninth inning of the 1926 World Series. Scientist and researcher Sheldon Hirsch has taken a decidedly unorthodox approach to sports history In sports there are lies, damned lies, and statistics. Joe DiMaggio's fifty-six-game hitting streak was magical.

The three-point shot is an essential part of NBA basketball. Babe Ruth shouldn't have attempted to steal second base in the ninth inning of the 1926 World Series. Scientist and researcher Sheldon Hirsch has taken a decidedly unorthodox approach to sports history.

He looks at myths, legends, conventional wisdom, shibboleths, and firm convictions of all kinds that sports lovers hold to be true, and demonstrates how analysis of facts and figures disproves what tradition-and sportswriters-would have us believe. Divided into three parts, on baseball, basketball, and football, Hot Hands, Draft Hype, and DiMaggio's Streak contains enough clear-sightedness and shocking conclusions to delight any sports lover.
