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.
And it is running under its own domain: archivedinnings.com
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!
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!
If you’re like me, you make an effort to keep an eye on your health and overall well-being. (Well, most of the time. I do have my eat-all-the-junk-food-in-sight days, too.) When it comes to ballpark food, obviously, the healthiest (and cheapest) option is to not touch the stuff. But I’ve had those days when I’ve gone straight from work to the stadium with no chance to snag a healthy, pre-game meal. Fortunately, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center was good enough to create this infographic to help us make better choices when faced with this dilemma.
Not my favorite holiday, personally, but at least I have something else I love to celebrate!
I came across this tune on YouTube, which appears to be an original by this gentleman (if anyone knows otherwise, please feel free to let me know). I especially love the way he opens the song, particularly the phrase “as seen through the eyes of a young boy.” Because, ultimately, doesn’t baseball bring us all back to our childhoods?
Check it out, even Santa likes baseball! Here’s hoping everyone has a fun-filled and fulfilling holiday season.
Here’s a chart that depicts perfect games throughout baseball history, beginning in 1874. The fact that there have only been 23 perfect games thrown in the hundreds-of-thousands of games that have been played in Major League Baseball goes to show just how difficult a feat it really is. Three perfect games in 2012 is an especially astonishing number, with this in mind.
I hope everyone gets to enjoy a lovely turkey dinner and some time with people you like.
The great thing about baseball is, I’ve heard a hundred statements beginning, ‘The great thing about baseball is.’
