Ladies Links: Episode 2

by Wendy Thurm on August 19, 2011

I introduced Ladies Links last month in which I highlight and provide links to outstanding women baseball writers. Why Ladies Links?  Because there are terrific women baseball writers on the interwebs who love watching and listening to and writing about baseball and have insightful and interesting things to say.  Giving them a little more attention is a good thing.

Episode 2 features:

  • Stephanie Liscio of It’s Pronounced Lajaway — A Cleveland Indians Blog with The Darkest Day in Indians History on the 91st anniversary of the death of Indians shortstop Ray Chapman.  The day before his death, Chapman was hit in the head with a ball thrown by Yankees pitcher Carl Mays.
I look forward to your feedback on the Ladies Links feature in general and the specific links provided.  When you come across outstanding women baseball writers, click the contact button at the top right and send me a link for future Ladies Links editions.

This site both elates and depresses me. The depression part? My wife will retire from teaching this year and she does not even try to”get ” the beauty of baseball. It is actually a real and deep sadness for me that we have not been able to share this sport: “other” love of my life. I can enjoy, and really do, cooking and gardening shows with her but she absolutely is closed to attempting to let the game that I think is simply miraculously perfect , into her consciousness. So, maybe next life.
Keep it up. Great writing.
