Once upon a time, a woman named Bethany Heck launched a Kickstarter to create an old-school style baseball scorebook. “The book is designed for beginners,” she wrote. “With lots of spaces to take notes on what you ate, who sang the national anthem, where you sat and what the weather was like…The goal is to make scorekeeping fun again.” Her project was a success, and quickly became an all-time staff favorite — we still remember fondly the day our books arrived. We spent all afternoon passing them around the office, crowing over the thoughtful details, the lovely design, and fantasizing about all the hot days (and hot dogs) ahead of us at the ball park. But Bethany wasn’t finished! Since then, she’s wowed us with The Eephus League of Baseball Minutiae, a site for fans to share everything from player nicknames to baseball cards and photographs, and now, the debut of The Eephus League Magazine:Through this publication I hope to delve deeper into the nooks and crannies of our game, and preserve these small pieces of triviality lovingly and permanently. It is as much a tribute to the game itself as to its enormous and diverse group of fans. Much of the content inside was generated by passionate and talented fans, expressing their love of the game in infinitely unique and personal ways. Baseball touches each of us in different ways, and in turn the manners in which we express our connection are incomparable.With its impeccable design and spirited content, we predict many a future baseball fan to come. Be sure to check it out!
This looks really neat.
