My blog turns one-year old today. Over the last 365 days, I have posted 217 articles, mostly about baseball, occasionally about other topics. I’ve written stories on the modern game and on baseball in the years just after the Civil War’s end. I’ve posted stories about, among many others, Will White, Fred Merkel, John McGraw, Babe Ruth, Satchel Paige, and, of course, Dazzy Vance himself, the one-time journeyman hurler turned Hall of Fame flamethrower. These men have all helped make baseball a great game and a fascinating conversation piece.
Below, you’ll find stories I wrote in the early days of this blog. You may have missed them. Thank you for reading, and I look forward to another year of blogging about baseball.
