If there were a Hall of Fame for Internet baseball sites, Baseball Almanac would be a shoo-in for admission.

If there were a Hall of Fame for Internet baseball sites, Baseball Almanac would be a shoo-in for admission.
In 1866, Charles A. Peverelly wrote, "The game of baseball has now become beyond question the leading feature of the outdoor sports of the United States ... It is a game which is peculiarly suited to the American temperament and disposition; ... in short, the pastime suits the people, and the people suit the pastime."
Baseball Almanac has dedicated itself to preserving the history of our national pastime and has rapidly grown into an interactive baseball encyclopedia filled with more than one-hundred ten thousand (110,000+) pages of in-depth baseball facts, original baseball research and baseball statistics not found anywhere on the Internet. O’Malley is widely regarded as a pioneer in baseball for the westward expansion of the game, moving the Brooklyn Dodgers to Los Angeles prior to the 1958 season and for designing, building and privately financing Dodger Stadium which opened on April 10, 1962. In December 1999, O’Malley earned two significant honors as The Sporting News recognized him as the 11th Most Powerful Person in Sports over the last century, while ABC Sports ranked him in its Top 10 Most Influential People "off the field" in sports history as voted by the Sports Century panel.
