Become The Ultimate Fan
My Name is Tom Hannon, and I own This Day In Baseball.com, and I went on this journey to build this site for you. Many websites capture every stat you can image, I love stats, I love baseball reference, but stats don’t tell the full story of the game. Most import stats are numbers. They are not emotions, and they don’t tell your story. Trust me, I could tell you hundreds of stories right now about the experiences I have had at games.
I will share just this one – I was not alive when Bobby Thompson hit the shot heard around the world. I have since seen the video many times of his walk-off home run against the Dodgers. But my Dad told this his story of listening to the game to me 1000 times. He also told his grandchildren. That is what baseball is about, connecting us to these events through generations.
I want YOU to have the chance to honor your memories by giving you an ultimate fan experience. Every Page is an event, player, team, ballpark, date, year, and so on. You can sponsor any post, be it Hank Aaron, Mike Trout, or Cap Anson. You can sponsor any event such as Game 1 of the First World Series, Jackie Robinson’s Debut, or Josh Becket closing out the Yankees in 2003.
Your sponsorship has 4 levels and one with unique gifts, you can give the Page as a gift to someone or to yourself.

In a contest which features two reversed calls by the umpires, the Red Sox, three outs from being swept in Game 4, become the first team in baseball history after trailing the series 0-3 to force a Game 7. Curt Schilling, playing with a dislocated ankle tendon, turns in an outstanding pitching performance in Boston’s 4-2 victory over the Bombers in the Bronx ballpark, 4-2.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
The Player Page has almost no information, why should I Sponsor it? There have been over 19,000 players in MLB history so it is a process. However once you sponsor a player and it can be any player here is what happens (before and after video of Andre Dawson’s page), we add images, career stats, noteworthy events and news, biography, audio and video if available. We also do some cool back end tricks to help get the page found. Check out the before and after video and please understand it is your sponsorship that is going to allow us to bring you this unique content!
Why is there duplicate posts? This Day in Baseball has uploaded 5 various data bases and that has resulted in some duplicate content. FEAR NOT there is only one sponsorship per event. In cases where there are multiple pages they will be cleaned up with our priority being adopted pages first as we make our way through the content. The initial uploads were completed on October 19, 2019. There are over 60,000 pages on this day in baseball so please be patient on all unadopted pages.
How do I find events? Players? Ball Parks? This Day in Baseball has over 60,000 pages and growing, it is hard to shift through it all. So I recommend you check out this video. If you can’t watch the video, go to the search bar which can be found in the right hand column and in the hamburger on your mobile device. Type in any date, year, player, and the search function will list out every instance with that term in it. Some players like Babe Ruth have allot of items to search through. You can also search categories (PS – this is under development as of 10/20/2019, about 30% of the pages are categorized).

What is the long term viability of this day in baseball? This Day in Baseball is formerly, Thebaseballpage.com, which you can see on the wayback machine. The Baseball Page.com was founded in 1995 by Dan Holmes who worked for MLB and The Baseball Hall of Fame, the site was acquired by Tom Hannon in 2009. Hannon then sold the site in 2012, and reacquired it in 2018. Hannon bought it back to finish the job he started in 2009 to bring the amazing stories to life via a multi media experience. The content and site dates back almost 25 years and we are promising to the fans to continue to develop it and give you an amazing experience with the ability to be part of it.
