Call for papers: British baseball research for Project COBB

A Call for Papers has just been published for This Diamond Isle, a new biannual journal of British baseball (to be published online only as the periodical for the Project COBB Chartered Community of the Society for American Baseball Research).

You can see the Call for Papers by clicking here.

Pieces may focus on anything linking baseball to Britain, from roots games, through the “invasion” of American baseball in the late 19th Century, all the way to the modern game (including aspects of developing the minority sport and its players in Britain or following foreign professional leagues from afar).

The deadline for submission for the first issue is 15 August 2013.

If you would like to get involved, as an author or in some other way, then please get in touch with me via this form.
