It’s a quick and dirty click-thru today, enjoy!
- Is there anyone out there who can tell me anything about Dombrov Baseball ? This is a FREE computer baseball game that I’m interested to try, but I’d like to hear a couple of testimonials before I install it.
- From The Sporting News, August 16, 1999 – Dave Kindred takes you on a trip into the basement at APBA’s old Lancaster facility in this article: Musial, Moon, Repulski. Holy Cow!
PS: I have not yet joined Sabr.org – if I had, I would have complete access to The Sporting News archives going all the way back to the turn of the 20th century. I will be joining soon (I need to pay for my new Strat-o-Matic 2012 game first!)
- PPS: Did you know that APBA Major League Baseball Computer Game cost a cool $89.99 when it was introduced in 1986! And we complain about prices now…
- I stumbled across this blog the other day and loved this article, since I, too, have hired and fired many great fake coaches (never considered Sir Paul McCartney, though!): Great Fake Coaches I’ve Hired and Fired
- In Any Player Any Era: Doug Glanville, Graham Womack of BaseballPastAndPresent.com imagines Doug Glanville on the St Louis Cardinals of the mid-80’s. In the comments, I presented a different take, as I would love to know what Glanville could have done on the 1962 Pittsburgh Pirates, replacing Bill Virdon in centerfield.
- As a father of two little girls, I found this article on Women in Minor League Baseball to be very interesting and enlightening. I have no idea what it’s like to be a woman in the workplace, and no idea what it’s going to be like for my girls when they get to employable age. I thank women everywhere (their mother for one) who are continuing to blaze trails and break “glass ceilings” everyday so that the girls of the youngest generation alive today are able to enjoy greater freedom in their choice of careers than the generations proceeding them had.
