Welcome to The Baseball Index


The Baseball Index is a free catalog to baseball literature. TBI is an ongoing project of the Society for American Baseball Research to catalog the entirety of baseball literature, from the earliest references to the present day.

To use TBI, type in a baseball-related keyword in the search bar above to get started!

You can find bibliographic data (citations) for more than 250,000 books, articles, song sheets, yearbooks, advertisements, films, cartoons, poems, media guides, cartoons, and more.

Remember, TBI is an index to baseball literature. While we are adding URLs for full-text items which are available on the internet, most entries give you the means of finding information rather than the information itself. To learn more about the project and how to use it, visit the About or Frequently Asked Questions pages.
