Today Right Off the Bat celebrates its Second Anniversary. In the course of two years, we’ve managed to post 417 blogs (including this one), received 281 comments, and had 12,699 bits of spam intercepted by the good people and even better machines of WordPress. And through the wonder of the Intertubes, we’re being read in regions of this globe we never thought we’d reach. In only the last seven days, for instance, we’ve been visited by folks from the U.S. to South Africa, India to Indonesia, and Hong Kong to El Salvador, as well as one individual from that hotbed of cricket and baseball, Romania.
Being bookish sorts, we don’t get out that much, but just in case you find yourself in the New York City area in March, we’re staging two—count ’em, two—events where you can see what all, or none, of the fuss is about, and learn about these two noble games. See you there!
Wednesday, March 6, 2013, opening reception at 6:00 p.m., talk begins at 6:45: The Coffee House, 20 West 44th Street, New York, NY 10036. Come and bowl us a few googlies—or pitch a curveball or two!
Wednesday March 20, 2013, opening reception at 3:30 p.m., talk begins at 4: Saints John and Paul Church, 280 Weaver Street, Larchmont, New York 10538. (This would have been the 100th birthday of Evander’s father.) Join in the fun.
