A hot, tragic day in July 1932
It was just past the middle of July, 1932. A heat wave was enveloping Knoxville. On Sunday the 18th, the high was 92 and it didn't hit the low of 80 until midnight. Monday would reach 93. The Smokies were in Chattanooga where they had split a double head...

George Wright and bread crumbs
John Thorn posted a nice biography of George Wright at Our Game . He used a quote that I'd never seen.  And I like the imagery. Here's the quote that John shared: “Whenever he would pull off one of those grand, unexpected plays that were so dazzlingly surpr...

Nigel Wilson tore his what?
At a local thrift store I found this sheet of cards that was angrily torn from the magazine that once held it safe. They were created in the style of the 1973 Topps Football.  You know.  The "Participation Ribbon" set.  Everyone gets one. Best I can figure ...

Maps of The Negro Southern League
William J. Plott wrote a wonderful book, The Negro Southern League - A Baseball History, 1920-1951 . Using the data in his book I've made maps of the cities in the league by year.  Limitations in Google Maps forces me to have no more than 10 layers (seasons...

More letters and letters answered
This is what I was dealing with. When dealing with a dessert from the Cheesecake Factory, one does not trifle with numbers and scoring. B Man asks: Dear Comish what value if any do the Full Size Numbers Game inserts have? And the Commissioner answers: Full ...

Early base ball in Iowa
Eddyville, Iowa, is a small (pop. just over 1,000) city in the southeastern quadrant of that state.  The Friends of the Eddyville Library just announced the launch of the “Eddyville Newspaper Archives: Opening the Digital Window to the Past.” I took a look ...

This is how you bribe
Several weeks ago I was approached by a contestant. They said that they wanted to send me a bribe.   I told them that I absolutely could not accept a bribe.  That would go against everything that Gint-A-Cuffs stands for.  Fair play.  Impartiality. Ah, heck...

Zeke Frumin - Knoxville Jewry's baseball hero
The Jewish Post  - December 28, 1945 I'd never heard of Zeke Frumin, so off I went to my usual research haunts. I was able to find a Seamore Frumine and his family living in Chattanooga at the time of the 1930 Census. Year: 1930; Census Place: Chattanooga, ...

George M. Uhaze
I was looking for some info on the New York Blue Sox in the late 1940s and early 1950s when I came across this image of George Uhaze. Trenton Evening Times  - May 1, 1951 image from GenealogyBank.com That's a rather unique name.  So I looked him up on Baseb...

Letters, we get letters...
And so it begins. Questions about scoring are starting to roll in.  For those of you who are new to Gint-A-Cuffs, this is nothing new.  Be aware that the good Commissioner can't immediately answer all the questions that come pouring in due to poor explanati...

I'm on the edge of my seat
Great art work by Spankee. And what should arrive at my house earlier this week? The good folks at Topps sent two hobby boxes to be used as prizes for this year's Gint-A-Cuffs. So, we're now live.  Start ripping, showing, and scoring. Yeah, I'm sure that I ...
