As Michael has pointed out, the working draft of the baseball book is finished. We now have a complete draft finished. It’s 385 pages and almost 190,000 words in length. We had a great time putting it together, and now it’s time to find a publisher for it, which we’re getting ready to begin doing. I’m just tickled that it’s finally done.

And it also means that I can get back to my normal routine and resume regular posting about the Civil War.

    As a Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Indians nut and long-time baseball card dealer in the Cleveland area, I welcome this book and sincerely hope you find a quality publisher who will get this in print soon. Baseball is perhaps an even larger passion with me and my sons than the Civil War, and we used to go to 25-30 Indians games a year for 20 years.

    I can’t wait for the new book, and congratulations on finishing it!

    Scott, I would like to say that as an Indians fan, you will not be disappointed. (Not sure how much comfort that brings though as our title is “You Stink.”) Thanks for the interest and support. I can’t wait to see what you and your sons think of it.

    The reason my kids and I could see so many games for free is that none of our customers or our other executives and managers wanted the season tickets, so I got them whenever no one else put in a claim. The Indians were so back in those days while they played in the “mistake by the lake” (Cleveland Municipal Stadium) that few fans attended, and even fewer out-of-town customers, so I ended up with dozens of seats a month.

    Super Joe Charboneau, Andre Thornton, Len Barker — the Indians had only a few decent players in those days.
