The green of the field; the roar of the crowd; the crack of the bat when it connects with the ball, knocking it out of sight: This is the calendar that takes obsessive baseball fans right to the ballpark. Every day is packed with stats, history, and fascinating factoids. There are immortal records: Name the National League player who holds the record for stealing home the most times in a season*: A) Jackie Robinson, B) Pete Reiser, C) Tim Raines, D) Lou Brock.
