Readers of this blog may be aware that I enjoy studying history in my free time. Come for the baseball analysis, stay for an inexplicable John Hunyadi reference, why not?
I’ve noticed that there are a number of history aficionados who are also bonkers for baseball. I cannot be the only reader of this blog who screamed when Mike Duncan famously  compared the Roman emperor Aurelian to Sandy Koufax.
I know for a fact that some other members of ye olde blogge are fans of Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History. For no reason at all, I offered a brief homage to the podcast in last year’s Richie Palacios prospect piece.
I’m taking things a step further this year.
