SABR is pleased to publish Going for the Fences, a compilation of minor league home run records. The book will be released in early April 2009. Originally published in the early 1990s, the book has been updated through the 2008 season and contains dozens of lists of minor league home leaders and feats.

“This book sold very well when we first published it in the 1990s,” says SABR Executive Director John Zajc. “We are bringing it back with new info and a slicker look and think that home run fans and minor league fans will both love reading through this book.”

Among the lists published in the book are Players with Four or More Home Runs in a Game, Most Home Runs in a Season by Two Teammates (and Three Teammates), Top Ten Career Home Run Hitters by League, and Players Who Led Two Different Leagues in the Same Season.

You’ll learn who the 54 players are who led both a major and minor league in homers (Manny Ramirez and Bug Holliday are two of them). You will learn which Hall of Fame players led a minor league in homers. You will get the home run logs of Tony Lazzeri in 1925, Mosse Clabaugh in 1926, Joe Hauser in 1930 and 1933, and Dick Stuart and Frosty Kennedy in 1956. You’ll get the year-by-year home run leaders by leagues and much more.

The pre-publication price is only $16 when you order through the SABR store, but hurry, the pre-publication discount expires March 27, 2009.
