A couple of months ago I told you about the new web venture from Phil Bencomo, the fellow who used to write Cub Town for the now decommissioned Baseball Toaster. It’s called The Baseball Chronicle, which is in the business of publishing themed stories, essays, interviews or reporting about baseball. Well, it’s live now, with the first batch of pieces around the theme “hooked.” So far, a poem by Ember Nickel and a piece from Micheal Webb explaining the strange hold tabletop baseball games have on him.
We have plenty of statistics and analysis and breakdowns. Some stories are a nice change of pace, so by all means, let’s encourage them by checking out The Baseball Chronicle. And how about submitting something? Next month’s theme: “The best I ever saw.”
