The book contains scores of fast moving biographical sketches, accompanied by just one line of hitting statistics for each player, vividly ilustrating how closely the matched up hitters resemble each other. The reader will see how Pete Rose resembled Harvey Kuenn, how Kirby Puckett was Roberto Clemente reincarnated, how Dale Murphy hit like Johnny Bench and how today's Barry Bonds is doing a great Mickey Mantle imitation, while David Justice is producing like Fred McGriff. More than one hundred fast-moving match-ups are delivered, using Batting Average, Slugging Average and On Base Percentage as key indicators.
