Some Big News on the Baseball History Front 4/26/14

Hey baseball fans!

As you all know, I love blogging about baseball history, no matter what the subject. I started blogging back in April 2012 and yesterday I actually put up my 250th career post!!  Thank you all for continuing to read and support my work.

Well, a lot of you have asked me, what else have I been up to lately? Besides school, I've been working on the side on a manuscript for a baseball history introduction book. The book is meant for anyone, whether you're a kid or an adult, who doesn't know much about baseball history, and wants a fun, easy-to-read overview with lots of cool pictures. I wrote the manuscript last year and I want to officially announce that yesterday I entered into a book publishing contract with Summer Game Books, a baseball book publisher, to publish my book and I'm super-excited!!

My book's name will probably be: "Amazing Aaron to Zero Zippers: An Introduction to Baseball History." There are, as you may have already guessed from the title, 26 chapters in the book, one for each letter of the alphabet. The book will take you on an alphabetical adventure through the history of America’s national pastime, baseball.  You will learn about the most important who’s, what’s, why’s, when’s and where’s, including the best players, the most iconic parks and teams, and the greatest moments. 

We are targeting this fall, around World Series time, for the book's release. Originally, it will likely come out in electronic format, and then hard copy versions should follow.  

Also, since I write my stuff for the purpose of educating people about baseball history, I'm donating my proceeds from the book to four charities connected to baseball and its history: the ALS Association, the Turn Two Foundation, the Jackie Robinson Foundation and the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. 

Keep reading my blog, or follow me on Twitter (@BaseballwMatt) for more announcements. And, as always, check back in a few days for more of "all the buzz on what wuzz."
