This volume provides a cumulative index to the highly acclaimed multi-volume Biographical Dictionary of American Sports, listing all items alphabetically for the first five volumes, published from 1987 to 1992. The five volumes, classified by sport, provide comprehensive biographical information on over 2,700 of the nation's most extraordinary sports figures. A majority of the index applies to baseball, football, and basketball entries, but other sports covered include auto racing, golf, harness and thoroughbred racing, lacrosse, skiing, soccer, tennis, track and field, bowling, boxing, gymnastics, ice hockey, figure and speed skating, swimming and diving, weight lifting, and wrestling. Five letter classifications indicate the volume where particulars can be located, (e.g.: B: Baseball volume, F: Football volume, I: Basketball and other Indoor Sports, O: Outdoor Sports volume, S: Supplement volume). This index will save users considerable time.
