Nashville Chapter of SABR Started

November 30, 2006

Skip Nipper (webmaster of www.sulphurdell.com) and I have started a Nashville area chapter of the Society of American Baseball Research (SABR).

The chapter organization will take place at our first meeting in January. More specifics will be given soon.

If you are a member of SABR and live in or near Nashville, we hope you will join us. If you're not a member of SABR and love baseball, what are you waiting for? Go to their official site at www.sabr.org and sign up!

 


Latest Kitty League Research

November 30, 2006

Currently I am compiling box scores for the 1922 season, which to my knowledge has no final or complete statistics.  It should take six to eight months to finish this project.

Unfortunately, copies cost 25 cents each where I do my research and there will be a lot of box scores to copy!

If you would like to make a financial donation for this project, no matter how small or large, it would be greatly appreciated. Please see the Donation page to learn how.

 


The purpose of this site is to honor the players, managers, teams, and fans of the Kitty League, perhaps the most colorful Class D league in professional baseball.

The Kitty League was the nickname given to the Kentucky-Illinois-Tennessee League. (When Vincennes had a team, it was also referred to as the Kentucky-Indiana-Tennessee League; since Cairo, Illinois was in the circuit for a longer duration, I refer to it as the latter.)

The Kitty League brought the National Pastime to fans in Western and Central Kentucky, Southern Illinois and Indiana, Southeast Missouri, and West and Middle Tennessee for thirty years between 1903 and 1955. It produced many young players who enjoyed solid major league careers and gave veterans the opportunity to keep playing the game they loved.

This site is also a way to contact former players and family members who might have more information or photos they'd like to share. My goal is to write a complete history of the  Kitty League based on research taken from period newspapers, baseball publications, and most importantly the memories of the players and fans who were there.
