Where's the love for '501'?

One person's opinion on "A few baseball books to extend the season."

Really? That's all you could come up with? IMHO, one of the nice things about 501 Baseball Books Fans Must Read before They Die -- which includes entries about the three titles in the aforementioned piece -- is that it lets you, the reader, decide decide how best to extend the season. After all, how better to get your "baseball Jones" than with a good book (or 501) by a crackling fire?

Just sayin'.

100,000 thanks

After a complicated determination process, it has been decided that Dennis Anderson of Dunlap, Illinois, was the 100,000th visitor to my Baseball Bookshelf. His reward? A signed copy of 501. Bound to be worth thousands of pennies a century from now.

I asked Dennis to share a photo with his prize. How appropriate that it was taken in front of his baseball bookshelf.

Thanks, Dennis, and thanks to all those who enjoy reading about our great game.
