Seals Stadium update

Seals Stadium I have updated the diagram for Seals Stadium, the home of the Giants for their first two years in San Francisco in the late 1950s. There are several minor corrections, the standard detail enhancements, and one significant change: Foul territory is smaller than I had estimated before.

Also, I've finally gotten around to adding three pictures taken by John Minor to the Turner Field page, deleting two (similar) older ones that I had taken. More photos of other stadiums taken by John will be posted soon.

Nobody wants Manny...

Not at the price he's demanding, anyway. Ramirez turned down a one-year, $25 million offer from the Dodgers, and the general manager of the Washington Nationals, Jim Bowden, said his organization is not interested in hiring him, either. The Nats are building a long-term pool of young talent for the future, and even though they really could use some offensive star power to generate ticket sales, it doesn't make economic sense for them to pay one player that much. Another hot prospect is Adam Dunn, who reportedly received an offer from Washington and is thinking it over. See

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
