RIP Baseball mentioned in Star-Tribune

Minneapolis Star-Tribune history columnist Curt Brown has written a really nice article about the life of Elmer Foster, the 19th-Century baseball player/actor/hell-raiser. He references this blog and includes a quote from me in his story, which marks the first time I’ve ever been mentioned in a newspaper since the time I got a scholarship in high school. So it’s been a few years, to put it mildly.

Check out Curt’s article about Elmer Foster here.
