Letter from the Editor
Michael Aubrecht Pinstripe Press

Three years ago, Sean Holtz at gave me my first professional writing assignment and a shot at a second career. Since then, I have been privileged to write and publish several essays along with three online reference books and I want to thank him for giving me a start. As a lifelong baseball fan, I have always been fascinated with the legacy of America's National Pastime and nothing pleases me more than digging through my library of books or surfing the 'net and learning about teams and individuals who played this wonderful sport decades before my parents were even born. However, as I continue to study the past, the MORE respect I have for the players of yesterday and the LESS I have for the players of today. OK, I'll admit it, I'm biased. I'm old-fashioned. I'm a Republican, a conservative, a Christian and a "throw back". Many nights I have laid awake in bed contemplating the state of the world and wishing I had the tools and talent to get my "time-machine project" off the ground. In short, I long for a simpler, safer, time when the country resembled a Norman Rockwell painting and people were actually willing to work for the American Dream. Sports is a perfect example of my "What WAS vs. What IS" Philosophy and provides the basis for my latest rant. READ ON Year In Review

Player Profile
#10 Phil Rizzuto
Born: September 25, 1917, Brooklyn, New York

Phil Rizzuto overcame his diminutive size to anchor a Yankees dynasty, helping them win seven of nine World Series during his 13 seasons, not counting three years lost to World War II. "The Scooter" was a durable and deft shortstop, skilled bunter and enthusiastic base runner who compiled a .273 lifetime batting average. A five-time All-Star, Rizzuto was named the American League's MVP in 1950 when he excelled with a .324 average, 200 hits and .439 slugging percentage. Upon retirement, he spent 40 years as a popular Yankees broadcaster. Source: MLB Hall Of Fame

Did you know ... Rizzuto was the first mystery guest on the television program "What's My Line" when the show premiered February 2, 1950?
