    Hi Joe, I just read the entire “Tales From Opening Day” collection, (except mine, of course) and I think it turned out really well. Thanks so much for choosing to include my essay. I really enjoyed all the other essays, and the Tweets were cool, too. Thanks so much, Bill Miller (The On Deck Circle)

    Nice job! I enjoyed it immensely. Following up on Halliday's no-no tonight, I couldn't hel p but think of where I was during Larson's no-no-no-no. I was at the news paper office, waiting for my papers so I could go out on my route. The trouble was: the boss had the radio on and we thirteen-year-olds were not leaving until the game was over or the no-hitter was broken up.

    Your next project?

    Hi Rich .. That's a great story about Larsen's Perfect Game!! We've been talking about soliciting our friends for a “Legendary Games” eBook. Maybe you could contribute that one?!

    As far as our next project, we are bookending 2010 with the World Series companion to this Opening Day book. Keep an eye out for it this winter.

    Great to hear from you!
