the new and improved ba

You’ve heard the story countless times. Media company fighting the headwinds in the industry decides to reduce the frequency of its magazine while claiming that the publication still holds the same value. The formula doesn’t compute: fewer pages and reduced frequency equals less value, not more. Many in publishing are panicking. Late last year, “Seventeen” announced that it was no longer publishing a print magazine after 74 years. Several other renowned titles have either eliminated their magazines or significantly reduced the number of issues they produce. At Baseball America, we are well aware of the challenges in print, but we also strongly believe in our product and loyal subscribers. Starting this month, we are going monthly and are very excited about it. I believe this will enable us to put out a…

changing with the times

@JJCOOP36 If you are a longtime Baseball America reader, you may remember a one-time unofficial motto of ours. If the New York Times was once “All the News That’s Fit to Print,” Baseball America used to operate under the idea that “All the News Will Fit if We Make the Type Small Enough.” Look back at our 1999 College Preview issue and you will see some font sizes that require a magnifying glass to read. Sandwiched around a feature on freshman Georgia Tech third baseman Mark Teixeira were notes about how now-Oklahoma State head coach Josh Holliday was the best defensive catcher in the Big 12 Conference. But to get all of that content into the magazine, sometimes the type had to shrink smaller than was ideal. Allan Simpson and his Baseball America staff…

where are they now?

CATCHING UP WITH A NOTABLE PLAYER FROM BASEBALL AMERICA HISTORY Over a major league career that spanned 13 seasons, Jeffrey Hammonds hit three home runs in one game and was an all-star for the Rockies in 2000, when he hit .335 with 20 home runs and 106 RBIs. Yet none of those highlights stands out for him quite like the relationships he forged while playing the game, and that he continues to build today as a special assistant for player services for the Major League Baseball Players Association. “The game was good to me, but the Eric Davises and the Charles Johnsons, those guys to me were everything,” Hammonds said. “We connected in ways off the field, we all had a common goal to be great, and we still have a common goal…

FEATURES Paige Lowary couldn’t heal where she got sick. After two years in the circle at Missouri, she packed her bags and moved farther west to a place that would turn her into a national champion.

alumni association

While our College Preview aims to prepare readers for the 2019 season, we also like to keep an eye on the past. So in this exercise, we celebrate the programs that have produced the most impact big leaguers since 1999, which ushered in the modern era of college baseball with minus-3 bat restrictions and a 64-team NCAA Tournament field. Schools are ranked here by the total of wins above replacement, as estimated by Baseball-Reference.com, compiled by alumni in the major leagues, ignoring players who posted negative WAR values. 1. Long Beach State: 214 WAR The 2005 Dirtbags featured a lineup anchored by SS Troy Tulowitzki (2005, 7th overall) and 3B Evan Longoria (2006, 3rd overall) and a pitching staff led by RHP Marco Estrada (2005, 7th round) and RHP Jared Hughes (2006,…
