Why do people dedicate pages?
Sponsoring a page is a fun, fast, and easy way to memorialize your favorite memories. Once your dedication is complete you can:
- Show your support for your favorite player, season, ballpark or team.
- Its exclusive! Your message is the only one on the page and you can own it for a year.
- It makes a great gift for that hard to buy for person who loves baseball
- Drum up traffic for your own site, social media account, or business & draw in fans with a common interest
- Get some well-deserved recognition for your support of This Day In Baseball
- Make your voice heard by the tens of thousands of people who visit This Day In Baseball every day.
- Once a page is adopted we take that page to the next level by adding, images, video (if available), audio (if available), links, newspaper accounts and some fancy SEO. If it is a game we add play by play, line scores, and links to boxs cores. Your sponsorship will make a difference and help provide a great experience for all future visitors to this day in baseball.
- We encourage sharing your sponsored pages once they are finalized

The Player Page I like has almost no information, what happens if I pick that one for my dedication?
There have been over 19,000 players in MLB history so populating them is a process. If you want to donate to a specific post that doesn’t have much content, we will prioritize that page and add images, career stats, noteworthy events and news, biographies, audio and video if available.
Why are there duplicate posts?
This Day in Baseball has uploaded 5 various databases and that has resulted in some duplicate content. FEAR NOT there is only one donation per event. In cases where there are multiple posts, they will be cleaned up with our priority being dedicated 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 ThisDayInBaseball.com so please be patient on all unsponsored 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. 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).
Where are Sponsored messages located?

At this time it is text-only however images are in future plans. Stay tuned.

You will be contacted by the staff to edit your message. You are not charged any money until your message has been approved.

What if I decide I no longer want my message displayed?
You can email our Membership and Development team at [email protected] and we will take it down for you.
What does my dedication support?
Your dedication supports the history of the game and what it has meant to you. We are bringing the content to users in a unique way and you are making it possible for us to curate that content. Events are more than just the box score and players are more than stat lines. We are striving to create a story for every event, day, season, team, and player in the history of the game. There are ongoing costs to maintain the free online database, including data storage, security, internet service, servers, and ongoing development and maintenance of the digital asset management software.
What is the long term viability of this day in baseball?
ThisDayinBaseball.com 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. Tom sold the site in 2012 and reacquired it in 2018. Tom bought it back to finish the job he started in 2009 to bring the amazing stories to life via a multimedia experience. The content and site date 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.
