From BR Bullpen
Conceived by Gary Gillette, Rod Nelson, Ted Turocy, and Pete Palmer of 24/7 Baseball LLC, its first edition was published covering the 2007 season, with an edition covering 2006 released at the same time, filling the gap left when The Sporting News Baseball Guide ceased publication. SABR became a co-publisher in 2009, and has been publishing the guide annually since.
A printed copy of the guide is available only as a Print on Demand (POD) online order, although SABR has also made complete PDF downloads of the book available free to the public.
The current guide covers all or nearly all information formerly available in the Sporting News Guides.
