Surprise: Baker Bowl update!

Baker Bowl

I bet you didn't see this one coming: I updated the Baker Bowl diagrams, for the first time in nearly ten years! (To be exact, the last such update was on April 27, 2006.) Like many of the early-20th Century stadiums, the diagram for this one was in dire need of correction and enhancement. As with all such updates, there are now separate upper-deck and lower-deck diagrams, showing where the support columns were located. (In this case, the entry portals were mere notches in the top two rows of the upper deck, behind the support columns.) There's also a football version, since that is where the Philadelphia Eagles originally played, as well as 1900 and 1910 versions. I'm still a little unsure about exactly when some of the changes took place, so I may have to redo those versions later.

As a result, all four baseball stadiums from Philadelphia are now fully up to standard! That is the first city that was home to a baseball team in the early 20th Century for which that is the case.

Mobile display glitches

Thanks to Bruce Orser and Chris Knight for pointing out problems stemming from the recent reformatting, which is an ongoing effort. As a reminder, if you are using a mobile device, please click on the link under the banner that says "Toggle desktop / mobile display mode."

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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)
