Baseball website launched (10/19/2003)
Two former Minnesota baseball players, embarking on a book involving the state's amateur history from 1945 through 1960, have established a web-site address: www.mnbaseballglorydays.com.

The website's purpose is not only intended to publicize the book, but to request assistance from the public interms of names, statistics, town history, pictures and anecdotes. Armand Peterson and Tom Tomashek traveled extensively throughout the state last summer, talking to former players, baseball board executive, and family and friends of former players. But they are striving to make their collaboration as comprehensive as possible.

Although Minnesota has a rich amateur baseball history spanning from the last 1890s to the present, Peterson and Tomashek chose the aforementioned period because baseball was an integral part of community entertainment during that era.

"This is not a balls and strikes book," Tomashek said. "The book will deal with history and human interest from the state's smallest communities to the Twin City area. We have gathered a great deal of information, but would like to expand our data base."

The authors' email addresses and professional and personal backgrounds are included in the website.
