Happy July 4th ...

Jim Leeke — AABP

The months pass quickly, and it’s now the Fourth of July. Exactly one year from today, we expect to play our Great War baseball match at beautiful Farnham Park near London. Planning continues, and we hope to announce an exciting international match-up before the end of the summer.

Meanwhile, my baseball history of WWI is now available in bookstores and online. The title is From the Dugouts to the Trenches, from the University of Nebraska Press. Of course, this new book includes an account of the great 1918 Army-Navy baseball game at Stamford Bridge. We’ve posted links to reviews, podcasts and radio interviews on our News page. I hope you’ll check them out.

Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with all the news, photos and shared information from the Anglo-American Baseball Project and our many WWI sports friends. There’s a lot happening out there … in the US, UK and across Europe.
