Around the Majors: Jones sets the Braves HR record

The next edition of the sabermetric baseball encyclopedia, which will include the 2005 statistics, is now available to be preordered in many of the packages in my ebay store. The store consists of more than 200 baseball books, magazines, DVDs, cards and yearbooks and more are added each day.

The ones that say encyclopedia with 2005 stats in the 2nd line are the ones that include the preorder of the next edition. There are (and will be for a little while) packages there that have not yet been amended to include the new edition. If you are interested in any of them, please contact me and I’ll get that one amended for you.

The next edition of the sabermetric baseball encyclopedia, which will include the 2005 statistics, is now available to be preordered in many of the packages in my ebay store. The store consists of more than 200 baseball books, magazines, DVDs, cards and yearbooks and more are added each day.

The ones that say encyclopedia with 2005 stats in the 2nd line are the ones that include the preorder of the next edition. There are (and will be for a little while) packages there that have not yet been amended to include the new edition. If you are interested in any of them, please contact me and I’ll get that one amended for you.
