Baseball statistics and guides have been a part of the sport since the early days. There have been a variety of publishers, focusing on a range of leagues and accomplishments.

In 2014 Sean Lahman assembled a list of guides available online.

I found some more guides that he didn't have listed, as well as some supplemental baseball material.

If a novel was listed, I tried to find it at the Internet Archive and then link here. Several titles were omitted as an online digital copy could not be found.
