I'm Certified

This showed up in Saturday's mail.

Philip Lowry, author of Baseball's Longest Games and Green Cathedrals, sent this to me for finding an unknown marathon game.  Phil is a fellow SABR member.  He asked if I could share some info with the group that I lead (East Tennessee Chapter) to see if they could find more games.  I took a look around my usual haunts and came up blank in Tennessee, but then I broadened my locations.

Here's what I found about the 20 inning game.

So, thanks, Phil.  I'm honored to accept the certificate and more honored to assist in research.

I had expanded on a bit of Phil's work in Green Cathedrals a bit ago.  I located the location of the Star Baseball Grounds in Covington, Kentucky.

I'm always a bit troubled by using the terms "I found" or "I located".  The information is and has been sitting there, for all to see.  I just connect the dots and share what I learn.

  1. Perseverance paid off. Again! Good work in "noticing" the data.
