Welcome to BaseballChronology.com!

By Patrick Mondout

June 1, 2008
Welcome! What was once called "Super70s Baseball" is now BaseballChronology.com!

We are covering the history of baseball from 1845. That is a large task and we hope you will be patient with us as we roll out new pages over the coming months. That said there are thousands of pages here already (over a half million if you include the statistics pages!) for you to enjoy.

We feature thousands of unique photos, stats from Retrosheet and the Baseball Database (see credits), trivia, quotes, crosswords, and full-text books on baseball by Henry Chadwick and others (a new one is added each month - see below).

If you're interested in baseball history, bookmark this page and come back each week!

As one of the most important teams in the history of the sport, the coverage of the Red Stockings is perhaps the most compelling reason this book remains popular with historians. Read more...

Share Your Memories!

Our sites have always been by you and about you. If you check our TV Forums or our Technology & Science forums, you'll find literally thousands of messages from fans of 1970s TV shows, survivors of hurricanes or aircraft accidents, etc. from all over the world sharing their memories, asking questions, making comments. Our baseball section is new, but don't let that stop you from sharing your memories of the first game you went to, your favorite player, a now-forgotten stadium, etc. Of course you can also ask questions, post trivia, tell the world what you think of Barry Bonds, or just read what others are saying.
