Preview my sabermetric literature book-in-progress

Hi everyone – for the past fifteen or so years I’ve been working on writing a book length manuscript with the goal of summarizing as much of the sabermetric literature that I have been able to find.  I have finished versions of the first three chapters.  The first is an introduction directed mostly to those with little background in sabermetrics.  The second reviews work on the progress of the inning, plus a bit on the progress of the game.  The third covers material on situational factors.   All are available at the following website:


I have also included a table of contents including all of the projected content.

I hope many of you find this helpful in your work.  If you want to look at any of the sources I have referenced, I have copies of most of them that I can send to you.  Please contact me at chazzq@udel.edu if you have any comments or suggestions for corrections that you think I can make in updated versions of the chapter.  I am particularly interested in any relevant material I am not aware of that you can send me.

I hope to have the fourth chapter, on strategy, completed in the next month or two.
