I have been a baseball fan for as long as I can remember. While the Yankees are my favorite team, plain and simply I love the sport. While I enjoy watching a game now whether it be college level, minor league, adult league or major league, one thing has always fascinated my about the sport and that is its history. This love of the sport has led me to have an extensive collection of books on baseball history and has also led me to write three books. The first book is titled “Baseball in the Bay State” and it is a history of the sport of baseball in Massachusetts covering both major and minor league teams as well as players,the Negro Leagues and ballparks that were or are in the state. My second book is titled “Gehrig:Game by Game” and it is a history of every major league baseball game Lou Gehrig played in including regular season, World Series and All Star games. There is all kinds of information on Gehrig both biographical and baseball wise as well as a section on the dreaded disease ALS that is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. My third book is called Baseball in the Berkshires: A County;s Common bond which I co wrote with Tom Daly, Jim Overmyer and Larry Moore. This book in turn led us to form a group which has put together a museum exhibit with regards to the history of baseball in Berkshire County where I live. It is ever expanding and new items are being added each and every day. I also give talks to schools and groups and write for CNY as well as Legends on Deck where I am doing a fantasy type series to see what the greatest baseball team of all times is for each era I have divided the sport into. Baseball is a sport that teaches teamwork and is a sport that everyone has played some form of, at one time or another. I look forward to researching about baseball and its history in the Central New York region and I also look forward to sharing that information with you. >>>>Check out Kevin’s Latest HERE
