Last of the 30-Game Winners

By Craig W.

I worked decades in MLB, primarily in player evaluation. Largely as a hobby I also researched and wrote a pre-game radio show, "A Page from Baseball's Past" that was on the air for 25 seasons. This was inspired by the stories my grandfather told me that taught me about the history of the game. In 2008 I began a subscription text version of the story series (Pages from Baseball's Past). I strongly believe in the quote of Rudyard Kipling: "If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten."
