I am a former journalist, permanent baseball fan. As long as I can remember I’ve loved reading the “on this date in baseball history…” one-liners in the newspaper. I wanted to know more than the one-line. I wanted to know the story. So, I started TODAY in BASEBALL as a labor of love in 2005.

For example, Hoyt Wilhelm hit a home run in his first major league at-bat. He played in major leagues for 21 years and never hit another home run. What’s the story behind that?

Today’s Baltimore Orioles used to be the Milwaukee Brewers. How did that happen?

Dave Steib came amazingly close to breaking Johnny Vander Meer‘s record of two consecutive no-hitters. Tell me more.

I hope you enjoy reading the stories as much as I enjoy researching and writing them. And while the regular season, playoffs and World Series come and go, TODAYinBASEBALL.com is here 365 days a year.

  1. Dear TODAY in BASEBALL,

    I am just contacting you because I work for Livesport (the company behind websites like FlashScore.com) and we really like your website, so we want to know if you are interested in becoming one of our partners by agreeing to do a link exchange with our Baseball24.com website.

    We operate under a large network of websites that generate a huge amount of traffic, so we are ideally looking for our link to be placed somewhere on your homepage. If you are able to do that for us then we can put your link on either our LiveScores.info or BetScanner.com website. The reason why we suggest doing this is because Google will consider the link exchange to be natural and therefore it will boost your search engine optimisation.

    If you are interested in working with us then please reply to this email and we can discuss it further.

    Kind regards,
