Baseball Interviews

The oral history of baseball players, through their own words, is a very diverse and wonderful field of research. Join Baseball Almanac as we salute independent researchers who have conducted different baseball interviews. The Baseball Interviews section has simple goals: to foster the study of baseball through oral baseball interviews, stimulate interest in players yet unexplored by our site or elsewhere, and provide a forum for independent researchers to publish their research.

Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"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)
