The Baseball 100 came out Tuesday, as all of you know, and the last few days have been some of the most extraordinary of my entire life. I am dizzy. The book has been selling so fast that, frankly, we’re worried about running out of stock. The reviews have been so overwhelming that I do not even know how to feel.
I mean, what are you supposed to feel when your writing hero, Leigh Montville, writes a review like this about your book?
All of it has been so wonderful but it also has been all-consuming. I’ve tried hard to keep the trains running here at Joe Blogs, and I feel like I’ve done a pretty good job for the most part, but I will admit falling a little bit behind now. Today’s Football 101 piece, for instance, will instead run on Monday. I imagine that there will be a few more delays as I get through this amazing but crazy time, and I appreciate your patience.
Oh, and yes: With the baseball playoffs coming up, I promise that I will find the time for lots of baseball stuff.
Unless the Yankees start winning. I can’t predict what I’ll do then.
Thanks for being a reader. I truly hope many of you feel like you have been a part of this amazing Baseball 100 journey … because you have.
