Baseball Research Articles

Independent Research by Baseball Historians

The history of our national pastime is very diverse and the number of topics that fans find interesting knows no limits. Join Baseball Almanac as we salute independent researchers who have explored and written about various facets of baseball.

The Baseball Articles section has simple goals: to foster the study of baseball, stimulate interest in topics yet unexplored by our site, and provide a forum for independent researchers to publish their articles.

"Research is one-half frustration, one-half exclamation point, and one-half question-mark. If this adds up to more than 100% it proves that mathematics and research sometimes gives confusing results." - Michael P. Ryan in The Permissible Lie (1968)
