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.
