Over the next little while, The Baseball Cube will delve back into High School data
. Though it existed in a prior version of TBC, it was thin and for only a few selected schools. The latest attempt will be a long-term project and will be available only to TBC PREMIUM
subscribers. I have been collecting data for a month and today, I started development to integrate the data into the site. On High School pages, (See Blessed Trinity
in Georgia), above the alumni, you will see a list of available seasons. Regular visitors will see the years available unlinked while subscribers will see more information. You may also see notes of availability on players pages if data exists...designed to tease. Sorry. The data is still thin but will be growing at a fair rate over time.
The Division I NCAA season starts on Friday, February 14, 2020. Only 2 weeks away. College World Series defending champions Vanderbilt
are the pre-season #1, according to Baseball America
. I'm not sure what percentage of baseball fans care about college baseball. But in case you didn't know, The Baseball Cube cares very much
The Empire league
is a Professional Independent Baseball League. It is named after the Empire State (New York). According to Wikipedia
, there are 3 teams from upstate New York, 1 in Puerto Rico, 1 in New Hampshire and a travelling team. To complicate matters, the league office is in Tampa. Someone once asked me to add the league to my Indy League section
. I have complied.
Visit this page for site updates and random, possibly baseball-related information on the progress of the site and life in general. Hey Cube ... seems kinda old school to go this old format when y'all got Twitter, Facebook, Instachat and all those them there social media things. Well, to be honest, I don't like Twitter or Facebook. I find the updates drop out of feeds rather quickly and therefore, is hard to keep people informed. I also don't like the comments and easy/direct access to insult me publicly. This is not healthy. Instead, I will provide a link to this section at the top of each page where visitors can, at their leisure, click through to read about my latest updates or even my latest rants. You will not be able to comment or reply directly. Its only there for you to read. You can comment privately to me via email if you wish. Old School works better for me.
