DIAMONDS IN THE DUSK

Dedicated to the proposition that baseball history should be far more than a chronicle of superstars and championship teams. Diamonds in the Dusk is a celebration of the amazing diversity of America's National Pastime -- spotlighting the characters and the oddities (and the odd characters!) that have populated the game at both the major league and minor league level.

For every Babe Ruth there is a Bunny Brief. For every Willie Mays, a Bris "The Human Eyeball" Lord. For every Sandy Koufax, a Astyanax Douglass. The 1927 Yankees are justly famous, but the Longview Cannibals, the Raton Swastikas, the Texarkana Casketmakers and the Staunton Lunatics should not be forgotten either.

ON DECK: Over the summer look for stories on such notable players as Jack Elkins "Greensboro Born & Bred", Herman Fink "Textile League Graduate", Frosty Kennedy "The Greatest Player Ever", Lyman Lamb "Tulsa Two-Base Terror", Charles Hallman "Winless in Portsmouth" and Art Rooney "Wheeling Stogie to Steel City Icon." An all-star lineup to be sure.

In addition, league-centric stories on the 1909 Eastern Carolina League and the Kitty League's Lost Season of 1905 are on the schedule. Thanks for your interest in Diamonds in the Dusk.
