On March 14, 1961, former Yankees president George Weiss agreed to become the first president of the expansion New York Mets. It is believed that the Mets offered Weiss a five-year deal at $100,000 annually, more than he ever earned during his 14 seasons with the Yankees.
I never really could understand the idea of becoming “one with the bat.” Wouldn’t that hurt?
I don’t think it comes as a surprise that baseball involves the least amount of running of any of these. I am a bit surprised that a tennis match requires more running than a basketball game.

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!
