Important notes: Baseball Digest cover topics are listed in the order they appear on the cover using left-to-right.

Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"The magazine itself has retained much of its familiar format in providing fans, young and old, with the kind of human interest articles and statistics about the players that have always been the publication's stock and trade." - Publisher / Baseball Digest Owner Norman Jacobs in Baseball Digest (January 2002)
