“This is a real honor,” says BBM editor Bruce Baskin. “I’ve known of the Baseball Bluebook since I was a kid in the 1970’s and it’s great to actually be a part of it for 2011.” Chuck Murphy, who has been president of the Class A Florida State League since 1990, told the St. Petersburg Times in September, “We called it the ‘Bible of Baseball’…Everybody had to have a Bluebook. If you didn’t have a Bluebook, you didn’t have all the information you needed to run a ballclub.”
The Baseball Bluebook is now owned and operated by Dennis Wubbena of the southwest Missouri town of Fair Grove. Its website can be found at http://www.baseballbluebook.com/.
