From the Publisher

With a victory vs. San Diego on the final day of the 2010 regular season, the San Francisco Giants began an unlikely run that culminated with postseason glory. And in 2012, the Giants did something that very few teams—at any level, in any sport—prove capable of achieving: they validated the title won just two years earlier by winning the World Series again, for the second time in three years. The Giants are truly an extraordinary franchise—both historically and in this present moment—and as the club prepares to take the field in 2013 it will do so with one of the most exciting and dynamic rosters in the game. In the immortal words of Larry Doyle, it’s great to be a Giant. If you’re a crazed San Francisco fan or a diehard fanatic of baseball in general, then it’s time to step up to the challenge and test your knowledge with these hardball questions about the Giants—all the sluggers, hurlers, and greatest moments in team history ... 51 questions to challenge the diehard San Francisco Giants fan.

Revenues are estimated at a record $10 billion for 2017, with some league sources suggesting the number could soar to as high as $12 billion. But its leaders treat the game as though it nears extinction, advocating a host of tradition-altering changes out of fear that today’s screen-addicted fans will soon swipe left on the boring old institution. Now, as MLB purposely markets itself locally, it tries to sell an international showpiece, the World Baseball Classic (which runs through March 22). Not long ago, baseball considere

Team USA Finally Proves World's Best, Crushing Puerto Rico 8-0 In Classic Final

It may be considered the national pastime, but in the first three World Baseball Classics the United States was far from dominant, with Japan winning twice and the Dominican Republic winning once. The Americans went 10-10 over the course of those tourneys and had never finished better than fourth — until this year. But facing a Puerto Rican team they'd lost to less than a week ago, the United States left no room for doubt Wednesday, cruising to an 8-0 win and the World Baseball Classic title. It was the most lopsided title game so far in the four runs of the tournament. Toronto Blue Jays pitch

60. Why Are Sports Events so Expensive?

S.G. The price of attending big-league ball games has spiraled out of control. A family of four spends, on average, $219 to attend a Major League Baseball game, according to Team Marketing Report’s Fan Cost Index, a 24% increase since 2007. That’s 1½ times the rate of inflation over that period. There are a few reasons for the surge. A robust ticket-resale market on platforms like StubHub helps spike prices for seats, which are expensive to begin with. The average price for an MLB ticket is $31—a relative bargain compared with the NBA ($56) and NFL ($86). And once teams put captive fannies i
