About your host


Greetings, everybody. rothkap0018.jpg

In addition to working as a sports and features editor for a weekly New Jersey publication, I’m also a freelance writer, specializing in book reviews — primarily baseball-related — as well as pop culture. My work has appeared in such publications as Baseball America, New York Sportscene, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Mental Floss, ForeWord Magazine, January Magazine, E Magazine, Irish America, and American Book Review, among others.

I also serve as editor for the Society for American Baseball Research’s Bibliography Committee Newsletter.

Most of the articles on this blog are my own, with other items and reviews of note included for your interest and reference.

UPDATE: My first book — 501 Books Baseball Fans Must Read Before They Die — is scheduled for publication by University of Nebraska Press in the spring of 2013. Whoo-hoo!

Thanks for stopping by. Come back often, and drop a comment in the box.
