Hello to any readers who might be visiting this site for the first time. Thanks for stopping in. Make yourself comfortable and start digging through all the cards (see sidebar for a sort by team) and please join the conversation if you are so moved.

Finally: It looks like there’s a somewhat firm date on the release of my forthcoming book, which will trace (to use Frederick Exley’s phrase) “that long malaise, my life” through the prisms of my childhood baseball cards. If all goes according to plan, the book, published by Seven Footer Press, will be available Opening Day 2010.
