News on Volume 2 of “Pages from Baseball’s Past”

 

Yet another setback. I’ve just had a terrible time trying to get this done as a self-published book and so I asked ACTA Sports again about whether they would want to be the publisher. They indicated at the end of September they would be interested in doing a book titled “The Black Sox … 100 Years Later: More Pages from Baseball’s Past” with a publication date around the 2019 All-Star break. They envisioned it as a type of book they call a “gift book,” which in their marketing guidelines is a book about 125 pages and priced low at $14.95. I agreed, but just got an email on Oct-25 that they had decided not to do the book. At least I got to learn from their experience about what kind of book it should be. So, I’m back to self-publishing and will try to do what they envisioned on my own. For those who made pledges and have waited so patiently through the delays, know that I have been giving refunds to those that have asked. If you want to go that route, just send me a note.

A Page from Baseball’s Past was one of the longest running pre-game shows in the history of broadcasting major league baseball (26 years). You can now subscribe to an enhanced electronic text version, Pages from Baseball’s Past.

“If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.”

- Rudyard Kipling

The basic principle of Pages from Baseball’s Past is to simply tell a good baseball story that is also true and well researched. The final key component is to keep it brief, not to overwhelm the readers with a long research article but to simply tell a good story in a few pages. It is meant to be more entertainment than education, but I would consider it a failure if it weren’t also gently teaching the readership about the history of the game, which is in part learning the cultural history of our country.

 

My grandfather was born in 1884 and passed in 1988. He had a lot to share, and his stories were how I first learned about the history of the game and became interested in it. Those stories taught me a lot, but really, first and foremost, they were interesting stories. — Craig Wright, researcher and writer
