Take me out to the Library

For those of you who miss being at Camden Yards on opening day, we recommend getting your baseball fix at the library.

To get you in the mood, here are several books available in Langsdale you may want to peruse:


If you don't feel like coming to Langsdale, you can also access several baseball related journals and magazines through ResearchPort. Here are a few:


Finally, while I am sure a baseball fan will know about ESPN, MLB.com and the like, here are a few websites with information about the history of baseball that you may want to check out.


  • The Library of Congress' Historic Baseball Resources

  • Sports Illustrated Vault - Sports Illustrated has put 54 years worth of its articles online. Included in the archive is a copy of every cover, and links to related videos and photographs, although the photographs from the artices themselves are largely absent. However, they make it pretty easy to do things like search for covers featuring the Baltimore Orioles.


Do you have a favorite baseball related book, journal or website not listed here? Let us know in the comments.
