KIRKUS REVIEW

A volley of unmomentous sports facts and figures, historical anecdotes, and records -- for yo-yo endurance or for the most strikeouts or base stealing per game or career, the tallest pro basketball player, longest baseball game or boxing match or cycle tour. . . . A surprise to us: ""the greatest earnings of a baseball player -- the $1,091,477 amassed by Babe Ruth between 1914 and 1938."" With no notes on sources or verification methods, you just have to take Seuling's word for it.
