Hello. Considering it has been a few months since my last post, I figured it was time for an update. But like any pitcher, I shook off my catcher and decided to change things.
Thus, I’m changing the subject matter of my “Baseball History: Beyond the Stats” blog. My subject matter will still be on baseball history, but I decided to condense it to the decade of the 1980s. The decade featured a plethora of interesting players, performances and games.
I have decided to keep the title of the blog, but that may change in the future. The subject matter will feature the best and worst of the decade. Some of the materials will include the best/worst players (at each position), regular season moments, free agent acquisitions and more.
I have a personal connection to 1980s baseball. I attended my first game, played Little League and neighborhood baseball games and waited with excitement for highlights on SportsCenter. You may remember some of the subject matter, but whether or not you lived in the 1980s, I hope you learn some things about baseball in the decade you may not have realized before.
Enjoy the baseball memories of the 1980s!
