*The "Black Cubs?" Was the 1918 World Series fixed? Unearthed evidence that seems to point this fact would be explored.


*The Federal League challenge of 1914-15 and Chicago's forgotten pennant winner-the Chicago Whales of 1915.

*Charles Weeghman and his forgotten impact on the game. It was he who built Wrigley Field and moved the Cubs there after the FL went out of business. Shrewd businessman or Accidental Genius?

*The Cubs and White...

"MLB Network is proud to present....Ken Burns' 'Baseball!" Thus sayeth the voiceover announcer on the network. Ah, yes. The definitive documentary of our National Pastime...if you are from New York or Boston and want to see the doc pay an inordinate amount of attention to Boston blowing Game 6 or Doris Kearns Goodwin wax rhapsodic about how she chose Boston to root for after the Dodgers left Brooklyn because she couldn't root for the Yankees, or some such nonsense.

The documentary...

New Orleans Knights characters-continued

Posted 04-25-2009 at 09:29 AM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

Thomas Richard "Tom" Ray-Left-handed star pitcher of mostly bad teams in the 1970s. Like Dan Nichols before him, grew up in the Chicago area rooting for the White Sox, attended Game 1 of the 1959 World Series with his parents. Star pitcher and quarterback in suburban high school, drafted out of H.S. by the Cincinnati Reds in 1966. Reds waited patiently for him to harness his fastball, but after two trials with the parent club in 1968-69, were convinced he couldn't develope any other pitches....

Characters in the history of the Knights

Some of the characters I created to fill the roster of the New Orleans Knights from 1892-present

Jeremiah Thomas Brennan II-team founder and first owner. A rigid segregationist whose old world ways were mourned upon his passing in 1950, just as his son was integrating the Knights.

Jeremiah Thomas Brennan III-son of the founder; World War I veteran (Army-First Cavalry); ex-minor league catcher; team GM and owner from 1950-70s. He integrated the team despite rigid, raging...

Great to see the Sox recover from that beating yesterday to take one back.

Meanwhile, in APBALand, the 1936 Sox improved to 7-4 by beating the Boston Red Sox 9-6. Ted Lyons was the winner over Lefty Grove in a duel of Hall-of-Famers. The Sox coasted through the first 8.5 innings, jumping out to a 9-2 lead. Mike Kreevich contributed with a bases loaded triple early. In the 9th he followed up a Rip Radcliffe two-run homer with a solo shot.

Things got dicey in the 9th when...
