My name is Graham Womack and I’ve loved baseball history since I was eight.
My grandfather bought me a 567-page book on the subject that year and, unlike most other third graders, I’m guessing, I read the book cover-to-cover. To this day, nearly a quarter of a century later, I can still recite the majority of World Series winners and Hall of Famers from memory.
My childhood enthusiasm persists with this website, which I launched in May 2009. Three to five times a week, I check in here on a range of topics from the 50 best players not in the Hall of Fame to interviews with various former ballplayers and writers. I find there’s always something interesting to write about. After all, organized baseball history in America spans more than 150 years, with about 18,000 men having played the game.
Aside from this blog, I have a journalism degree from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and have written professionally for a variety of publications. I’m a member of the Lefty O’Doul chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research as well as the Baseball Bloggers Alliance and the IBWAA (Internet Baseball Writers Association of America.)
All this being said, thanks for visiting my website. I hope it provides the same level of enjoyment baseball history continues to offer me.
