Sometime yesterday afternoon Ballpark Digest surpassed a million page views for the month, and we should set a record for monthly page views Tuesday.
We’re pretty happy about the numbers. Last year was our best year ever, we’ve exceeded 910,000 page views monthly since August 2013, and we’re expecting even bigger things for 2014. Thanks to each and every one of you: we couldn’t do it without your patronage and support.
With nine book titles set for release in the beginning of 2014 and a host of new publishing outlets, we have lots of news for the new year.
First, we have NY-Penn League and Southern League histories planned for the spring, as well as second editions of Cradle of the Game, The Baseball Thesaurus and The Complete Guide to Big League Ballparks. We’re particularly excited about the NY-Penn League book: we’re publishing it in conjunction with the circuit and its 75th anniversary, and we’ll be promoting it with teams throughout the season. Second: We launched a new imprint, New West Books, with a great environmental title. Third: We have two Yellowstone National Park books in the works for the spring. Finally, we’re expanding our football line, with a biography of Jimmy Raye — the groundbreaking quarterback who helped Michigan State break the color line some 50 years ago — and The Football Thesaurus set for a summer release. Don’t forget: we’re always on the lookout for a good book title! Contact us for submission guidelines.
