To be honest I know virtually nothing about baseball but I think most people know the name Babe Ruth!

I think the content is great. Lots of info and interesting facts like his birthday that he didn't know, kept me wanting to read on.

Just a few minor things:

"baseball historian debate this"=baseball historians debate this

"major legue scouts."=major league scouts

I also noticed that a few times you've mentioned averages with a full-
stop in front. If that's intentional forgive me!

Hope other people comment!

smiley - blush! I guess you do learn something new every day! I now know a lot more about baseball! I wonder why it hasn't caught on that much in the UK? Maybe cricket edges it out or something? It's a lot faster though so would be more exciting I suppose.

Oh well another one of those Atlantic divides!! smiley - laugh

Fast? Nah not really, but compared to cricket, I guess smiley - smiley

We don't have any good entries on baseball here, really.

Well looks like you're trying to fix that section of the guide! smiley - winkeye
Often watching geriatric snails and paint dry on a cold day can look speedy in comparison to cricket!
But I still love it! A good excuse to waste a whole day! smiley - laugh

Well I'm only writing about the history smiley - smiley Not much explains how it really works.

I'll get around to getting some updates processed. We have an entry called baseball, but it's horrible and we have one called Baseball Basics with dozens of glaring flaws.

Well good luck because it seems like a load of work still to do! But then that gives a lot of scope for new articles whereas some subjects may have been overdone a bit say.

Hope you hit a home run with this subject and that you don't get thrown any curb balls!
(sorry, thought I'd try to work in my teeny bit and moderately humorous baseball phrases!smiley - groan)

Oh no! I really so seem to be making a fool of myself! Yah of course it's curve ball, I mean everyone knows that! *sheepish grin*

No, no, no...I think the baseball idea is great! Don't get me wrong. I think there's loads of scope for it as a subject. I was saying that sometimes it's difficult to write an entry about stuff that's already got loads of brilliant entries.

I think it's the side effects of a long day of tube trips, buses and trains combined with central London. (at least that's my excuse! smiley - biggrin)

smiley - laugh I'm just writing about what I know smiley - smiley

It also annoys me that there's very little mention of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Mickey Mantle in the edited guide! Plus I like the shiny 'Field Researcher Badge' smiley - bigeyes
