About the author

Bill Grimes photoI am a former journalist who started todayinbaseball.com as a labor of love in 2005. My goal was to expand on the "today-in-baseball-history" one-liners found in newspapers and websites. I thoroughly research and verify those snippets and turn them into stories. Todayinbaseball gives you the who, what, when, where, why and how of events that make up baseball's rich past. Much of it occurs in the offseason - trades, franchise shifts, post-season awards, etc. - so while the regular season, playoffs and World Series come and go, todayinbaseball.com is here 365 days a year. I hope you enjoy and keep coming back.
