The samples are a link to a PDF file which is the file format used in delivering the story series. Many computer users already have a PDF reader installed that will immediately open the file from the link. If you don’t have a PDF reader you can learn about getting a free one at the bottom of this page.

These samples give you a chance to immediately see what the stories are like before deciding whether to become a subscriber. You can also experience what the delivery service is like and see a few more stories by signing up for the four-week trial by clicking the red button on the right. All you need to provide is a name and email address. Three of the stories in the trial will come from among these samples but five will be stories not featured here.

Sample One: The Master of Two-Strike Hitting is a short story that demonstrates how being able to use a chart of numbers in the text version of Pages from Baseball’s Past can enhance the telling of the story.  

Sample Two: The Evolution of the Spitball is a historical story covering the evolution of the “spit ball” from the 1800s to the “wet ball” in the early 1900s that set off the spitball revolution that ultimately led to the pitch being banned.

Sample Three: The First Ten Million Ballplayer is a good example of the simple fun stories we can find in baseball history, and it has a nice kicker at the end. This story is also a good example of how the text version of Pages from Baseball’s Past can enhance the telling of the story with rarely seen pictures.

Sample Four: Take Me Out to the Ball Game told the story of baseball’s favorite song on its 100th anniversary in May of 2008.  

As with any of our stories, if you have additional information that you think could enhance the story in the future, or if you find a possible mistake, we encourage you to share that with us, as well as ideas you might have for new stories.

 

 

About PDF and PDF readers: Our stories arrive as an email attachment in PDF format (Portable Document Format), which is a common fixed format that is read easily across the various operating systems. A PDF document avoids the formatting mistranslations between email programs when writing “inline” emails, and it makes it easier to add a variety of pictures to the stories. The PDF format also makes it easy to print out a story if you want a hard copy.

 

Adobe’s free PDF readers can be downloaded at the following site for all the main operating systems (Windows, Mac, Linux) and their various versions of operating systems. http://get.adobe.com/reader/
