R.I.P. John Wylde

John Wylde has passed away. He's one of the towering figures in Harvard baseball, and in amateur baseball. He will be missed.

Although I've retired the blog, I wanted to acknowledge the passing of a wonderful man.

When you say that you have retired your blog does that mean no more discussion, no more analysis on the Harvard baseball boys?

Seeing John Wylde in his customary seat at O'Donnell Field was as much a part of spring for me as the weather getting nice when I was there. He was also one of this website's most ardent friends during its heyday.

As for the retirement of the blog: I may still be able to post some threads now and then, at least for purposes of jumpstarting discussion for other people. But the glory days of this site are long gone -- I'm living in New York and it's hard to see the team and generate original content, and my job and other life things don't allow me the time besides.

The good news is, I realize that the Columbia games happen here this year. Maybe I'll be able to go up there, take some video & post some material like in the good old days.
