There is always a temptation to write an “About” page on a website in a corporate manner. “Blah-blah was established in 1992 …” and so on. We won’t do that here. Instead, I’ll try to simply tell you about Gotham Baseball.
Gotham Baseball has been and is many things; a print magazine, a popular website and message board, a podcast, and a multi-platform product with a digital magazine and podcast component. But really, it’s a celebration of New York Baseball. The “past, present and future of the New York game”, as our tagline goes.
We had our fans from the get-go, as Amazon.com tabbed us as one of the Top 10 New Magazines of 2005 (and the only sports magazine on the list), We published as a print-omly product from 2005-2008, and to out great pride and joy, the entire run was selected and is now part of the permanent archive at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum’s A. Bartlett Giamatti Research Center in Cooperstown, NY.
“We believe (Gotham Baseball) … would be a valuable addition to our library collection.”
– James L. Gates, Librarian, National Baseball Hall of Fame and Musuem
We’ve tried our hand at broadcast with a great deal of success, as well as bringing back the magazine in digital form. Now with a new website design, we’re hoping that we can reach even more NY baseball fans than ever. So come on down to our virtual stoop, let us know what you like and don’t like, and what you’d like to see more of.
