Présentation de l'éditeur

Who's the greatest slugger of all time, Babe Ruth or Ted Williams? Where do Derek Jeter and Cal Ripken Jr. rank on the list of the best shortstops? At third base, would you rather have Mike Schmidt or Brooks Robinson? Is Fenway or Wrigley the better ballpark?

This book will end many arguments-and start some new ones. Sports Illustrated's has polled its Major League Baseball experts to determine the ultimate Top 10 in more than 20 categories. The rankings appear alongside stunning photography and classic stories from SI's archives. This is the best of the best in the major leagues, or, more simply, Baseball's Greatest.

HASH(0x97a48090) étoiles sur 5 Baseball’s Greatest; a Book of Top Ten List from Sports Illustrated 11 décembre 2013
Par Mark McGinty - Publié sur Amazon.com
A big part of being a baseball fan is debates the nuance of the game from the stands, or at work the day after a game, or during the cold, quiet offseason. Which current players belong in the Hall of Fame? Who was the greatest catcher of all time? Should there be instant replay? What was the single best game every played? There are hundreds of debates, and each debates has hundreds of opinions. And in the spirit of year-end lists, Sports Illustrated’s Baseball’s Greatest presents a colorful and thought-provoking summary of baseball’s best, including the top sluggers, pitchers, stadiums, managers and games of all time.

It is the ultimate book of baseball top ten lists, compiled through a collaboration of SI writers and editors, ranking the best players by position but also the best base runners, sluggers, defensive players and baseball movies. Who was the #2 shortstop of all time? Derek Jeter. Who is the #9 center fielder? Kirby Puckett. What was the greatest game ever played? It’s not Jack Morris’s 10-inning shutout during Game 7 of the 1991 World Series. As a Twins fan I’m biased towards that one, but it came in at #3. And isn’t The Natural a better baseball movie than Moneyball? As you can see, there is already plenty to debate. Imagine the opinions, the arguments that a top 10 list in over 20 baseball categories can create!

This is a hefty, significant coffee table book, overflowing with wonderful color photos, and classic shots of the old baseball legends who occupied this earth long before many of us. Ty Cobb (the #2 center fielder of all time), Lefty Grove (the #2 left-handed pitcher), and the Polo Grounds (the 8th best ballpark) all make appearances in giant, vivid black and white.

One thing I liked about the book is that it doesn’t ignore the men who have been tainted by their involvement in steroids or gambling, but judges all players by their performance on their field and the field alone. As a result, great players like Pete Rose, Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire are held in the same esteem as Babe Ruth, Jimmy Foxx and Eddie Murray. This is a book of baseball greats, players who contributed significantly to any fan’s enjoyment of the game, and it leaves the debates to the fans.

More controversial are the lists themselves and which players, stadiums and games were chosen and which were left out. How is 1988 World Series Game 1 not in the top 10 best games? Why is 1975 World Series Game 6 the #1? Sure, Fisk waved the ball fair and then jumped for joy after it cleared the monster, but his team went on to lose Game 7 to the Reds the next day. I can understand why Rogers Hornsby is rated as the top second baseman of all time, but why is Joe Morgan #2? Oh, perhaps I’m letting myself be influenced by his broadcasting. Like I said, the book doesn’t fault any player for their behaviors off the field.

I won’t give away much more, but here is how they ranked the greatest ballparks. Feel free to debate these for the rest of your life, as I know you have been anyway, without assistance from this enjoyable book.

Best Ballpark

1. Fenway Park

2. Wrigley Field

3. Yankee Stadium (the old one)

4. Ebbets Field

5. Oriole Park at Camden Yards

6. Tiger Stadium (not Comerica)

7. AT&T Park

8. Polo Grounds

9. Dodger Stadium (the current one in LA)

10. Comisky Park

Are these correct? Did they leave anything out? Can the Polo Grounds be included when it was demolished almost 50 years ago? These are the kind of questions and debates this book can spawn. It’s not only a great coffee table book, not only a great reference book, but it’s a great history book. A tight document of all the greatest things about history’s greatest sport.

Baseball’s Greatest is available from Sports Illustrated, makes a great gift, and you can buy it wherever books are sold.

Title: Sports Illustrated Baseball's Greatest
Editor: Bill Syken
Publisher: Sports Illustrated
ISBN: 978-1-61893-055-2

"Who is the greatest centerfielder of all time? How about the most dominant pitcher? What's the best game ever? SI's team of experts once and for all settles the questions baseball fans have been debating since the first pitch was thrown," the back jacket cover announces in the book, "Sports Illustrated Baseball's Greatest."

At two hundred and eighty-eight glossy pages, this over-sized hardbound coffee table book is targeted toward those who love the game of baseball and anything to do with America's favorite pastime. With color or black and white photographs that are full page close-up or smaller inserts, Sports Illustrated makes its mark honoring the beloved sport.

After an introduction discussing the athletes chosen and explaining how they were ranked, it gives the top ten players in each of the nine positions including right-handed, left-handed, and relief pitchers along with managers, games, ballparks, and franchises. Also added are the best designated hitters, sluggers, base runners, defensive players, and a summary of uniforms, characters, rivalries, movies, quotes, and records with a recap of results but no index listing names alphabetically.

In each of the "best of" chapters, the ten players chosen are listed with the winner first with large photographs and a few paragraphs per competitor. Also in each section, there is a full-page article reprinted from Sports Illustrated about a particular player.

Take the "mind and soul" position of catcher with the top ten listings in order starting with the best: Bench, Berra, Campanella, Rodriguez, Gibson, Cochrane, Fisk, Dickey, Piazza, and Carter. With the narrowest group of nominees, ten had to be chosen from eleven selections, with Harnett mentioned in the final results. A 1990 article by Ron Fimrite is included about Campanella, written after the player's car crash that paralyzed him. The photographs show the players catching, throwing, or getting ready to play ball.

Being a subjective ranking of winners, readers may debate the choices of position from long ago to current players. Was Cobb, Gehrig, Ruth, or Wagner a better player than Bonds, Glavine, Griffey Jr., or Jeter? Should gambler Rose be selected over four times in the categories or did the seven panelists overlook other games, seasons, or plays? Only readers can decide who they think had the best physical prowess, the strongest arm, or the most agility.

Worth its weight, this book is perfect for the baseball enthusiast that likes looking at pictures of their favorite players with little reading, few statistics, and a simplistic format.

This book was furnished by DKC Public Relations, Marketing & Government Affairs in lieu of a review based on the reader's opinion.

The ratings of most of the players seemed to be reasonable. Of course there were a few that were arguable, but overall the ratings were spot on. Photos were wonderful. Articles that were included were very good choices. Good addition to a baseball fan's library.
