1990-91 Upper Deck, Rick Zombo
(card #115)
Okay, I'll admit it. I've been a bit scattered as of late. Family has been visiting, work is hectic, other stuff is happening. I haven't been in a baseball card groove lately.  Not excuses, just explanations.

Then, to top it off, this blog and I were added to the Baseball Bloggers Alliance.  Their purpose is foster communication and collaboration amongst bloggers across baseball, increasing understanding and knowledge about the game.
I'm a Friend of the BBA.  Which means I should be blogging regularly, with intent and purpose, specifically about baseball and the like.  I don't think "the like" includes a steady diet of hockey cards, football cards, or racing cards.

I'm going to try to remedy that.  For the rest of the year, I'm going to try to blog at least three times per week on this site.  Yeah, it doesn't sound like much, but it would be a good thing for me to do.

I've got a few posts in the wings.  I had  conceived a string of posts about "Steel Arm" Dickey and then another string of posts about Frank H. Moffett.  But they didn't quite fit in with this blog.  Interesting.  Historical in nature.  Adding to the body of knowledge, but not quite right for this blog.  So, I started another blog.  Like I need something else to do and then abandon in the coming months.  But I did it anyway.

Old Knoxville Baseball.  It will focus on early baseball bits from east Tennessee.  Mostly newspaper clippings and transcriptions.  I don't know what "early" baseball is, but it would probably involve things from the 1970s and before.  The first two posts are from 1910 and 1911.  It won't have much commentary, just a collection of stories.  It, too, will be updated three times per week.  Maybe Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with this one going on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.  Sunday will be a wild card.

So, have no fear, I'll be back on Tuesday.  Or Monday, depending which blog gets which days.

Note: The photo of the Zombies poster was taken at Yee Haw Industries.  If you're ever in Knoxville, please check them out.
