100 Years of Who’s Who in Baseball: Lyons, Douglas B., Baseball, Who’s Who In, Appel, Marty: 9781493010158: Amazon.com: Books

This is a fantastic piece of baseball history, culled from the legendary, digest-size yearly Who’s Who in Baseball publication. Each cover is duplicated – Ty Cobb was the first player to appear on a cover, and the cover cost 15 cents. Babe Ruth had his first appearance on a magazine cover in 1920, and it was his first with the New York Yankees. And, perhaps most astonishingly, the first African-American player to grace the cover of the magazine was in 1966. The front was shared by four other players even then.a interesting relic that includes some statistics and stories from each year of the team’s existence.

About the Author

Who’s Who in Baseball may trace its roots back to its beginnings as a spin-off of the popular Baseball Magazine, which was published during the dead ball era of baseball. After the first issue was published in 1912, a second issue was published in 1916, which had Ty Cobb on the cover. Since then, the magazine has been published every spring. Since 1956, the book has been published by Harris Publications, Inc. (via its branch, Who’s Who in Baseball Magazine Co.) in the United States. The fundamental cover-design format of a red backdrop with black letters has been in use since the 1940s, and the look of this wonderful newspaper is so instantly identifiable to readers that the editors feel safe covering up the majority of the word BASEBALL in the logo to avoid confusing readers.

Lyons is widely regarded as the world’s foremost specialist on baseball.

He also collaborated with Boston Red Sox broadcaster Joe Castiglione on the book Broadcast Rites and Sites: I Saw It on the Radio.

His years as the Yankees’ public relations director led to his becoming an Emmy Award–winning television producer and the founder and director of Marty Appel Public Relations, which he still runs today.

A baseball tradition falls victim to spate of online information

When I was in first grade, I remember hurrying home from primary school to watch the Orioles upset the Dodgers in the World Series, which took place in 1966. When I was younger, I recall watching an airborne Brooks Robinson jump toward catcher Andy Etchebarren and pitcher Dave McNally as they celebrated a very implausible sweep on a little black-and-white screen filled with snow and static. My house has a poster of the classic scene hanging on the wall of the stairwell. Yes, old memories are wonderful ones to have.

A tradition that has endured is the annual trek to a newsstand, bookstore, grocery store or wherever to purchase a copy of “Who’s Who in Baseball,” a small, red, soft-cover book that contained the lifetime major and minor league statistics of every ballplayer, as well as a photo, biographical information and a listing of the trades, transactions and disabled list stints that each player had experienced during his or her professional baseball career.

In the days before the Internet, this was a goldmine of information for a young baseball fan who was just starting out in the sport.

Back then, every athlete was formed on an equal footing – with a smile on his face and a ballcap devoid of any logos.

The next year, while on my way to a spring break camping trip with my Boy Scout troop to St.

When my fellow scouts became disinterested after about 30 minutes in the tiny speck on the map, I spent a couple of dollars and immersed myself in the upcoming baseball season by learning everything I could about the players I might see in person or on television, or who I might read about in The Sporting News.

  1. A baseball season would be incomplete if he didn’t have the book in his hands.
  2. Each spring, I’d purchase it, and each winter, I’d add it to the expanding list of titles in the publication’s growing roster.
  3. It appears that the publication “Who’s Who in Baseball” has finally fallen, a victim of the easy availability of the same information via the keyboard of a computer.
  4. Who’s Who” was retired from baseball a year after celebrating its 100th anniversary, joining the ranks of planned doubleheaders, woolen jerseys, and sliding into second base with sharpened spikes raised at the fielder at second base.

As stated in an official corporate statement, “the magazine publishing sector has been through instability as a result of the fast rise of digital media, shifting consumer content choices, magazine wholesaler problems, and consolidation in the supply chain.” “We have tried everything we could to remain strong against these forces, but we have been unable to overcome these obstacles.” There has been speculation that some of the titles now published by Harris Publications may be purchased and maintained by another publisher.

  • However, it looks that “Who’s Who” will not be among them, at least not in its traditional format.
  • And with it, another tradition has come to an end.
  • In some cases, I brought the magazine with me on the plane from Maryland, and in others, I purchased it at Books-A-Million in The Avenue at Viera, a huge home run away from Space Coast Stadium, where the Nationals used to train, and delivered it to the restaurant over dinner.
  • The annual was handed over to Bill, and I believe I loved it just as much as Bill did receiving it.
  • I asked Bill whether he’d seen any copies of “Who’s Who” a couple of weeks ago, and he replied that he hadn’t.
  • I sent out a call on social media, first on Twitter, then on Facebook, and an old baseball acquaintance, Dave Howell, broke the dreadful news.
  • And it was painful.
  • I informed Ladson about the situation, and he expressed his disappointment as well.
  • The game benefited when the American League embraced the designated hitter, despite the fact that the National League did not.
  • As a matter of fact, we’ll become accustomed to seeing managers raise four fingers to signify an intentional walk rather than having a pitcher toss four balls high and wide of the plate.

Change may be a constant, but I am under no obligation to accept all of the changes. As for me, going through the baseball season without being able to browse the pages of “Who’s Who in Baseball” has left me yearning for a classic pastime that is regrettably no longer available to me.

Baseball Magazine – Wikipedia

A now-defunct baseball magazine, Baseball Magazine was the first monthly baseball magazine produced in the United States, and it was published for a short period of time. Boston reporter Jake Morse was behind the publication, which was launched before to that season’s first game. It was published until September 1957, when it was discontinued. The journal was relaunched for a brief period from November 1964 to April 1965, after which it was shut down once more. The magazine’s headquarters were in Boston.

F.C.

Cobb was the subject of one of Lane’s inaugural issues, which included tales about him as well as a Q & A session with him.

Morse penned an essay inBaseball Magazine in 1909, despite the magazine’s admiration for Young and Mathewson, proclaiming formerProvidence Grays pitcherCharles Radbourn to be “the best pitcher who ever lived.” Once again, a renowned story from the magazine’s early days emphasized how tough it was to play the position of catcher in baseball’s early days.

Who’s Who in Baseball – Marty Appel

Marty Appel contributed to this article. Being that it was the week before Opening Day, I decided to swing by my neighborhood magazine shop and pick up the 2008 edition of “Who’s Who in Baseball.” I’ve been doing this for 47 years now, but this is the 93rd edition, as it states on the cover, so I’m sure there are people who have been doing it for much longer than I have. I’ve gone back and acquired most of the previous issues, of course, because I’m a collector, but I must admit that the first few years contained so little information that I have some holes in the twenties.

There is also no red cover.

Many men out there create their fortunes while remaining anonymous, avoiding the media and Mitchell Reports, and go on with their lives as they have done for years.

To cover his 16 seasons, not counting the six lines for postseason play and two lines for career totals, it took 45 lines of year-by-year statistics to cover him; and THEN, when you get to the part about his transactions, you find that he had 12 trips to the DL and filed for free agency on twelve separate occasions.

  • Wow.
  • That information is not available on the internet.
  • Baseball America offers a “Super Register,” which weighs around 40 pounds and does not provide a gift voucher for hernia surgery, but it does contain complete career records for every player in professional baseball at the time of publication.
  • Who’s Who has the advantage of weighting nine ounces and arriving in the same digest size that it has been published in since 1969, making it a convenient reference tool.
  • Baseball Magazine released the inaugural edition of the Who’s Who in baseball in 1912, but later abandoned the idea until reintroducing it in 1916 with Ty Cobb on the cover.
  • (It was not until 1939, to the author’s surprise, that home runs were included among the statistics reported.) The most talked-about player from the previous season, or, starting in 1965, a group of players, was generally the topic of the cover story.
  • Then, until 1953, Clifford Bloodgood, a member of the Baseball Magazine staff, was given editorial credit for the magazine.

The Elias Sports Bureau then took over editorial responsibility from 1973 to 1981, with Seymour Siwoff serving as editor.

In 1990, MacLean (together with Bill Shannon) published a fantastic all-time edition of the Who’s Who in Baseball called “All-Time Greatest Who’s Who in Baseball,” which has not been updated since.

Even after all these years, the book has maintained its clean and conventional appearance, eschewing the expanded numbers that have become popular with the SABR generation while still offering the most comprehensive look at a player’s career short of carrying about 30 media guides.

In our last piece, which discussed how no one capitalized on the 1967 Red Sox pennant and produced an instant book, we mentioned two books that were published years later that focused on that historic squad.

We should have included a third book, “The 1967 Impossible Dream Red Sox,” which was published by SABR last year and edited by Bill Nowlin and Dan Desrochers and was released by SABR last year.

USA Today Sports Weekly ((formerlyUSA Today Baseball Weekly). Gannett Publishing Company, Alexandria, Virginia.

Who’s Who In Baseball, one of the game’s most venerated publications, is celebrating its 100th anniversary with a collection of iconic covers from the past century, as well as in-depth analyses and histories of the players featured on those covers, as well as informative accounts of the baseball history tied to each year’s issue. A colorful, must-have book of baseball nostalgia for lovers of the National Pastime, 100 Years of Who’s Who in Baseball is a must-have for baseball aficionados. There are a slew of yearly rituals and reminders that accompany the opening of the baseball season, and one of the most cherished of them is the annual who’s who in baseball publication, which lands on newsstands throughout the country every Spring Training.

In addition to being regarded as an authoritative source of baseball statistics and having been used by generations of club executives, broadcasters, journalists, and fans—Who Who’s in Baseball’s cover subject each year generates as much hot-stove speculation and buzz as rumors of trades, firings, and rotation changes during the off-season.

Featuring stunning illustrations throughout, this book takes you on a journey through the history of baseball, from the deadball era to the birth of “replay review.”

About the Author

Who’s Who in Baseball may trace its roots back to its beginnings as a spin-off of the popular Baseball Magazine, which was published during the dead ball era of baseball. After the first issue was published in 1912, a second issue was published in 1916, which had Ty Cobb on the cover. Since then, the magazine has been published every spring. Since 1956, the book has been published by Harris Publications, Inc. (via its branch, Who’s Who in Baseball Magazine Co.) in the United States. The fundamental cover-design format of a red backdrop with black letters has been in use since the 1940s, and the look of this wonderful newspaper is so instantly identifiable to readers that the editors feel safe covering up the majority of the word BASEBALL in the logo to avoid confusing readers.

Lyons is widely regarded as the world’s foremost specialist on baseball.

He also collaborated with Boston Red Sox broadcaster Joe Castiglione on the book Broadcast Rites and Sites: I Saw It on the Radio.

His years as the Yankees’ public relations director led to his becoming an Emmy Award-winning television producer and the founder and director of Marty Appel Public Relations, which he still runs today.

A native of New York City, Appel has made several appearances on ESPN, HBO, the MLB Network, and the YES Network. Specifications of the product ISBN:9781493010158ISBN-10:1493010158 Lyons Press is the publisher. Released on February 15th, 2015, with 216 pages. Language:English
