Latest Almanac Released!
January 04, 2010
Part 2 of the "Illuminating Story of Louisville's Eclipse Park" was finally released on Saturday, January 2. It has been a long row to hoe. Having started the work for this issue in September, I fully expected to have it out by Nov. 1. But a medical setback delayed my progress, as a blood clot developed in my left leg for which I needed emergency hospitalization. Then, in order to have the problem corrected at its root, I was again hospitalized for five days beginning Dec. 9. Bear in mind I needed to get the 2010 American Association wall calendar out as well. So just after Christmas I was able to finish up Vol. 8, No. 2, Part 2 of the Eclipse Park issue. It picks up where last summer's volume left off, and includes necrology entries for 41 former American Association ballplayers. An interesting (and extra challenging) issue to be sure!
