Dedicated to the proposition that baseball history should be far more than a chronicle of superstars and championship teams. Diamonds in the Dusk is a celebration of the amazing diversity of America's National Pastime -- spotlighting the characters and the oddities (and the odd characters!) that have populated the game at both the major league and minor league level.

For every Babe Ruth there is a Bunny Brief. For every Willie Mays, a Bris "The Human Eyeball" Lord. For every Sandy Koufax, an Astyanax Douglass. The 1927 Yankees are justly famous, but the Longview Cannibals, the Raton Swastikas, the Texarkana Casketmakers and the Staunton Lunatics should not be forgotten either.

Coming soon, stories on Steve (Wild Thing) Dalkowski, Jack Elkins, Ed Fallenstein, Herman Fink, Elmer Hansen, Lyman (Tulsa Two Base Terror) Lamb, Bill (Not Quite Grover Lowdermilk) Kennedy, Douglas (Five Star) MacArthur, Walter Malmquist, John Neuer, Ovid Nicholson, Archie Persons, Art (The Chief) Rooney, Shine Rumple, Luke Stuart, Al Teft and Jimmy Wiggs among others. A veritable smorgasbord of All-Stars.
