I intended to make this month's update a few days from now, but I wanted to let everyone know of the deaths of Billy Joe Forrest and Lon Carter Barton. Please check back next week for more additions to the site.

The Major League Alumni page has been completed with as many known big leaguers whose careers began in the Kitty League. I've also added images of baseball cards for many of them.

A new DVD and CD set highlighting the 2003 and 2005 Kitty League Reunions is now available!

The following player profiles have been added or updated:

The Downloads page has been created with a .pdf file for the 1905 Kitty League batting and fielding statistics.

A new link to Rex Hamman's American Association Almanac site has been added to the Links page, as well as one for a site on the history of minor league baseball in Greenwood, Mississippi.

Yes, I know--everything's changed once again!

Readers of this site know I'm fickle when it comes to its "look." I've changed its appearance many, many times over the years. I wanted to give the site a more vintage, nostalgic look and less "modern" looking (if that makes sense). I hope everyone likes it.

I'm working to get more consistent with updates to the site this year. One reason I can do it is I no longer publish The Bull Pen newsletter. It was a lot of fun to create, but it was also a major undertaking every few months and took a lot of my spare time to produce. 

My goal is to have a manuscript ready in 2007 that will focus on the 1935-1955 period of the Kitty League. To find out about my progress, please read my Research Journal.


A major addition to the site is a section for Kitty League seasons. Each season will have its own page with final standings, playoff information, batting and pitching leaders leaders, and All-Star teams. Pages for five seasons (1935-1939) are now online, with more to be added in the coming weeks.


I'm now working to convert the old player profiles to the new format.

After I add a significant number of players and managers, I'll begin work on profiles for club and league executive and umpires.

If there's a player such as a family member who you'd like to see added to the site, please send me a scanned photo (large is good) along with biographical information such as dates of birth and death (if applicable; hopefully not!) and places; middle name and nicknames (if any); and how they batted and threw (left, right or both). It makes no difference whether they played one game or 100 in the league, I'd still be very interested in them and adding their profile to the site.


Ballparks are a very interesting subject for me, but it takes time to gather information on them. I hope to make significant progress on this section over the next few months.


I'm still working to convert old pages to the new site design. If you can't find a page, please check back in a few weeks and maybe I'll have it reposted.
