A new book tells you everything you ever wanted to know about what’s behind the number on the back of that uniform hanging in your sports room.
It’s a 546-page monster of a book…all about baseball uniforms and the numbers that go on the back.
NorthJersey.com says "A bout with the flu in 1991 forced Jack Looney into bed — and into finally plotting how a jersey number book would go. He spent a week at the Hall of Fame library in Cooperstown, then put 2,000 miles on a rental car driving from camp to camp one spring training. He collected scorecards and clippings, made eBay his best friend, and interviewed equipment managers everywhere."
"Now Batting, Number … The Mystique, Superstition and Lore of Baseball’s Uniform Numbers" lists every number worn by every player on every team in every season up until 2005.
