Baseball Biographies

The history of baseball players, their biographies and their relationship both on and off the field in respect to our national pastime is a very diverse and wonderful field of research. Join Baseball Almanac as we salute independent researchers who have explored and written about different baseball biographies. The Baseball Biographies section has simple goals: to foster the study of baseball through biographical studies, stimulate interest in players yet unexplored by our site or elsewhere, and provide a forum for independent researchers to publish their research.

"Having a biography prepared has always seemed to me as either superfluous or in the nature of an epitaph. The omission of noth sometimes would seem to be of an advantage to the living." - Charles Comiskey in Commy (G.W. Axelson, 1919)
