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.
