One of the joys of blogging is when a post triggers a reaction in someone or enables you to learn something new. My recent post on the 50th anniversary of Rock Colavito’s four-homer game brought a comment in from someone who runs the Rocky Colavito fan site. There you’ll find a link to a petition to the veterans committee of the Baseball Hall of Fame to put the slugging Cleveland Indians right fielder (and off-season mushroom farmer) in the hall.

This blog has now cleared the one year mark, which must mean it has achieved some level of viability. My “hello, world” post was on June 18, 2008, and the first “real” post was on June 21, 2008. Thanks to everyone who has stopped by to take a look. I’ll be looking for an updated banner image to mark the occasion.
