Wait til Next Year . . . is making a come back.

I am going to mix a bit of the philosophy of my life into this blog as I continue to highlight some of my baseball card collection. (hoping the card collectors of this world welcome me back)

Its been a tough 18 months for me . . . the Chicago Cubs have had it rough as well.

This site will be devoted to all those who need to define what "wait til next year" means.

Feb 1st Eve

As we "celebrate" the Eve of February 1st (I realize there is no such thing but) there is always something to "celebrate". We embark on the shortest month of the year and the myriad of 2009 cards are starting to come out.

This is a short post to "celebrate" the shortest month with a comment about the shortest baseball player every to make a plate appearance - three foot seven inch Eddie Gaedel in 1951. It was a just one of those media stunts by Bill Veeck the then owner of the St. Louis Browns. Happy February to all !

  1. I'm reading Veeck's The Hustler's Handbook (1965). Quite a fun look inside the mad genius that is Mr. Veeck.
