I don't know that I would have changed my year of birth. Yes, being younger (and knowing what I know now) would be great, seeing as I'm well into the second half of my journey on this planet. But I wouldn't have given up living in the 1960s for anything. As for my love of sports, I actually wish I was a decade older. I have a great love of the old sports palaces that are now long gone. And there was a mass exodus in the early 1970s, just before I gained the means and independence to visit them. On a family trip, I missed seeing baseball at Cincinnati's Crosley Field by two weeks. I never got to Forbes Field or Connie Mack Stadium. The version of Yankee Stadium that existed from 1923 to 1974 was missed by a year. Madison Square Garden III was never seen by these eyes. And of course, the Polo Grounds and Ebbets Field were history long before my travelling days. Much as I love those buildings, I'm also infatuated by old scoreboards. As a kid, I worked an old light blue wooden beauty beyond the right field fence in London's Labatt Park. On this site, I re-create a generic version of boards of my youth on game pages. For baseball, I'm going to take it one step further. In time, you'll see imitations of various boards that existed in the past. For instance, the pages from games in Pittsburgh will eventually feature a mock-up of the old scoreboard at Forbes Field (even though the games were played in newer parks). I've started with the Milwaukee Brewers, while I'll gradually feature all of their home games with the original "MILLER HIGH LIFE" scoreboard (without the ad) from County Stadium. Not every team's home games will get this treatment. But enough will that hopefully, it will make a difference to you, the visitor.
