Like many baseball fans, I use the stats website, Baseball Reference pretty much on a daily basis. It’s one of the most useful baseball statistics sites out there. With the amount of times I quote stats, it really adds value to The APBA Blog. It was time to give a little back.
I had been thinking of sponsoring a B-R page on behalf of The APBA Blog for a while (I have for the Illinois Baseball Report for years) but when I saw that Paul Dylan had sponsored Mario Mendoza’s B-R page in the name of his most excellent blog One for Five, that had shamed me into finally taking action.
I already knew whose page would be bearing the name of The APBA Blog. George “Count” Puccinelli is a mostly unknown baseball player to most fans UNLESS you happen to be a member of the APBA community. His 1930 card is legendary and is one of the first I chose for my Monster Card Monday series.
So I virtually plopped down a small amount of cash (worth every penny for all the enjoyment I get from Baseball Reference) and sponsored George Puccinelli’s Baseball Reference page.
So thanks Paul for pushing me into taking action. I’m sure B-R thanks you, too.
