"There's a story, a funny story, about me (John Kruk) sitting in a restaurant. I'm eating this big meal and maybe having a couple of beers and smoking a cigarette. A woman comes by the table. She recognizes me and she's shocked because it seems like I should be in training or something. She's getting all over me, saying that a professional athlete should take better care of himself. I lean back and I say to her, 'I ain't an athlete, lady. I'm a baseball player.'" - John Kruk in "I Ain't an Athlete, Lady..." (John Kruk, Simon & Schuster Publishing, 01/01/1994, Forward)

Did you know that Baseball Almanac is attempting to catalog every ballplayer who has appeared on a Baseball Digest Cover since the magazine was first published in August 1942 when major league games were confined to the eastern and midwestern regions of the country?

The most prestigious award an author of a baseball book could hope for would be the Seymour Medal Award . It has awarded annually since 1996 by the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) and we have online each winner, the author, comments made by SABR, and a link for you to examine / purchase the book on Amazon.com.

Spitball magazine also has an annual award for baseball book of the year and we have a comprehensive list of those Casey Award winners online. Starting with the first year the award was issued (1983) through the most recent year we have included in the list the author and a link for you to examine / purchase the book on Amazon.com.
