The Guide to Baseball Fiction is a combination of bibliographic checklist and evaluative critical guide to over 714 works of baseball fiction. It has been created by Tim Morris of the University of Texas, Arlington, USA, and includes adult novels, short stories, juvenile fiction, plays, films, and criticism. He identifies outstanding books by a ratings system, where one star means a work with something of true interest or originality; two stars indicates a substantial success on its own terms, with much to interest a reader; and three stars mark an outstanding work in the genre of baseball fiction—an essential work for students and general readers alike. There are only six three-star works. The database is browsable, not searchable and there are also references to similar databases elsewhere.
