Ben Henry homers in final at-bat

December 15, 2008


Sadly, Ben Henry has decided to pull the plug on his site, The Baseball Card Blog, but in a final act of virtuosity and generosity he is providing his readers with the opportunity to take one last memorable journey through the world of baseball cards, a world he knows as well as anyone. I suggest that everyone tip an afro-crushing cap to Henry and his blog, as I do, and then settle in to view his last hilarious hurrah, a painstaking adaptation of Casey at the Bat in glorious technicolor cardboard


Also, there’s an interview with me at the blog of baseball historian and Strat-O-Matic consultant Scott Simkus. Be sure to check out the rest of Simkus’ site for entertaining interviews with Strat-O-Matic expert Glenn Guzzo and tireless Hardball Times blogger Craig “Shysterball” Calcaterra.



  1. 1.  Way outta here! Brilliant!

  2. 2.  Wow, he even changed “Fuck Face” to “Laug hing.”

  3. 3.  Josh, I saw your interview. Good stuff. arsfpt, I may come by the Bookworm on Saturday.

  4. 4.  Ennui: Cool! Everyone and their brother will be there:)

  5. 5.  My brother lives in West Hartford. If he’s available, I’ll bring him.

  6. 6.  Josh, they’re talking Seaver and other pitching greats at BTF in response to some ESPN thing about the best post WWII pitchers.

  7. 7.  6 : Thanks for the heads-up. On first glance, it looks like Seaver is in the conversation for most people, but that Clemens is the most commonly named top dog.

    Here’s a link if anyone wants to take a look:
