My original plan was to write something elaborate about semi-pro ball pre World War II, trying to explain the quality of play and provide some evidence and theories, but I got distracted by some “Family Guy” reruns and ####-canned the whole exercise. Instead, I’ll just cut to the chase and slap you in the face with some numbers. I’ve got some strong opinions on this stuff, but I’m too lazy to share them.
There's a real disconnect between how the NL afficionados think of Hill vs. what the HOM voters think of him. For the NL guys, Pete Hill is larger than life where for the HOM he's a HOFer, but nowhere near inner circle.
Yeah, I think you'd have to farm the writing out. How about an HOM book as a partnership with those knuckleheads at THT? How is this not a good idea? It's not a good idea. It's a ####### GREAT idea.
I second it. You can begin with Brattain and Treder.
As a side note to your side note of my side note, I discovered that there is actually footage of some Negro League players on DVD. I discovered on a search of Amazon that a DVD set of found footage randomly contains some NL material. The set is pretty expensive, though, so I have yet to talk myself into buying the set as I have no idea how much footage there is. I'm dying to see what there is, though.
