Happy Halloween!

Whether you are trick-or-treating, giving out candy, visiting haunted houses, going to a party, or just kicking back, please be safe!  Also, this picture makes me want a cookie.

First ASG scorecard

In anticipation of the All-Star Game being played tonight, here’s a look at the scorecard from the very first All-Star Game played in 1933.  The American League won, 4-2, in Chicago.

Quote of the day

Two hours is about as long as any American can wait for the close of a baseball game, or anything else for that matter.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Because where would a lot of our favorite ballplayers be today without their moms?

Archived Innings is live!

And it is running under its own domain: archivedinnings.com

If you get the chance, you should stop in and check out the new header. It’s nothing super fancy, but I created it myself, and it’s not too shabby.


On deck: Archived Innings

As you know, I have been considering the possibility of changing the name of this blog.  After reaching out to family, friends, and readers for ideas and giving it much thought of my own, I’ve decided that I am going to rechristen this site Archived Innings — a hint of baseball and a hint of history rolled into two words!

I am hoping to make the transition over the course of the next week.  I am putting the final touches on the new banner and looking into how to make the change to the domain name.  Hopefully things will all go smoothly!  Stay tuned for this exciting new phase!


Brainstorming a new name

Alright, my loyal readers — it seems that “Baseball Attic” is growing increasingly popular as a site name.  (Google it. I promise it’s true.)  Which is a shame, because I really did think I was being original with this one.

That being the case, I want to start brainstorming a new name for my blog, but at the moment, I am drawing a blank.  So I am reaching out for ideas!  As my readers are obviously the most familiar with the content I put out, I figured you would be a great resource for name suggestions.  If you have an idea for something that would fit well here, please comment below.  Thank you so much, and I look forward to reading your thoughts!
