Favorites 1999-2002


From 1998-2004 I maintained a baseball website dedicated primarily to spring training and the Arizona Fall League. What started out as eventually became Although I have not maintained the site since about 2006, I have kept the domain name. I have decided to take down most of the images from that time, keeping the best such as Albert Pujols playing for the Scottsdale Scorpions, as well as other baseball images from around the country. Below that, see various archived pages that I copied to my blog.

Arizona Fall League

Spring Training - Arizona

  • Minnesota 1968 - The box score from my first major league game, June 22, 1968, Yankees at Twins. Homers by Mantle and Oliva. For those who say modern baseball games are too long, there were no substitions by the Yankees and time of game was 2:10. No bullpen by committee, Bahnsen went 9.
  • Milwaukee 2005 - Mixed in with images around Wisconsin, statues of Aaron and Yount, sausage race, Andy Pettite with the Astros.
  • St. Louis 2005 - Mixed in with images around St. Louis, includes Musial statue, old Busch Stadium, and view of new Busch Stadium under construction.
  • Kansas City 2005 - One shot of the stadium.
