About Baseball America
Baseball America has been around since February 1981, when founding editor Allan Simpson started the magazine in his garage in White Rock, British Columbia. What began as a magazine--originally called the All-America Baseball News--has since evolved into a full-service media company, with a biweekly magazine, four annual books, a host of special publications, and of course the Website you're visiting now.
Baseball America moved to Durham, N.C., in January 1983 and has steadily grown in readership, in influence in the baseball industry and in size, with more than 20 employees now both in our Durham headquarters and in New York, Chicago and Atlanta. We take pride in having not only the best information but also the best writing in baseball. Here's more information on some of our products:
: The magazine is published biweekly (with one double issue at the end of the year) and covers baseball at every level, with an emphasis on finding the best players in high school, college and the minors and tracking their progress. Magazine subscriptions include full Web access.
: We rolled out our Website for Opening Day of the minor league season in 1999, and it features all the great writing from the magazine along with daily coverage of the game, as well as complete minor league statistics. Much of our best content is for subscribers only; full access is included with print subscriptions, and Web-only subscriptions are also available.
