Craig Robinson is, among other things, an Englishman and a New York Yankees fan with a soft spot for the Colorado Rockies and a man-crush on Ichiro. Last season he played outfield for the Prenzlauer Berg Piranhas in the Berlin Mixed Softball League (AVG .452 SLG .548 OBP .575). His previous book, Atlas, Schmatlas: A Superior Atlas of the World, was deemed "highly inappropriate" by the director of the Forsyth County Public Library. His Web site is www.flipflopflyball.com.
"Beautiful, number-crunched combination of statistical and graphic-design geekery" --New York Times Magazine"The greatest baseball infographics ever." --Slate"Often wacky and always engaging" --Sports Illustrated"Infographics much more stunning than those you'd find in USA Today" --Deadspin"Contains a lifetime of baseball knowledge." --Toronto Star"Irreverent and entertaining" --Baseball America"The combination of [Robinson's] precisely created charts and the offbeat things they chart reflects a brain firmly, winningly divided between the game's childlike, imaginative pull and the over-thought technocracy of its sabermetrics era." --The Second Pass"Casual fans will definitely appreciate the trivia and visual aesthetics of Robinson's infographics. It's also a book that packs a ton of information for real fans--I find myself looking at the graphics over and over because I know I will find more value each time I pick up the book up." --Kevin Lai, Hardball Times"Do yourself a favor and buy this book. It provides insight into the game of baseball you won't find anywhere else. You'll also have the coolest book on your coffee table for when you throw one of those dinner parties you keep having." --Mop Up Duty
