I have not checked in here in a while, principally because (a) I have learning a new computer architecture and tools, and porting several year's work, (b) SABR's new web site has taken some of my thunder--it is now announcing things I used to announce, and with nice pictures, (c) I have been bummed about the Red Sox, and (d) I have been lazy.
Still, a lot continues to happen with the project. Here are a few.
Today is Connie Marrero's 100th birthday. There is a nice spread at sabr.org, but in particular I suggest you read Peter Bjarkman's wonderful biography for our project (update today!) HERE.
As part of our agreement with Acta, we were able to publish 48 bios from the book Don Zminda and friends put out on the 1959 White Sox. Did you know--six Hall of Famers? You can find them, plus other stars and criminals HERE.
The project has produced 9 themed books thus far. We have also recently contracted with the the University of Nebraska Press to do six more. You can read all about that HERE.
Mainly we have just been writing biographies, with a handful coming in every week. I have five more in the queue to publish, hopefully later today--including two Hall of Famers. Check back often.
Please join SABR, then join this project, then help us out!
