Notes from the Baseball Blogosphere...

Catching up from the last week or so.

"Everything I Needed to Know About People I Learned at Wally Moon's Baseball Camp" is a funny, life's lessons piece over at Baseball Analysts by Jeff Angus, I especially liked the bit about the stapler, because it's so true.

Most of the blogs I frequent are housed at Baseball Toaster. Besides the fact that I like most of the blogs over there, I feel a good deal of kinship for the site because, like b.org, the software was written by the guy who runs the site, Ken Arneson. It's been intersting to see him go through some of the same things that we went through in working out the kinks. Ken hosts his own blog, Catfish Stew, over there, and though it's devoted to a team I don't follow (the Oakland A's), I usually find it an interesting read. I really liked his recent piece "Death and Parataxis", a rambly essay on baseball, the universe, and everything.

I spend a lot of time at Dodger Thoughts. Although it's primarily about dem Bums, Jon Weisman occasionally goes off on interesting tangents, such as his post looking askance at some television fandoms, "A Different Ballgame: Lost on Mars."

The Griddle is Bob Timmermann's all-purpose baseball news/history/humor blog, which can be very funny, as when Bob called his cable company to find out why the baseball Extra Innings cable package he'd ordered was showing him a hockey game.

The Griddle also pointed me towards this brilliant piece of video game based animation, 1986 World Series Game 6 Re-Enacted in RBI Baseball. And here's how the animation was created.
