From SABR member Paul Lukas at ESPN.com on March 14, 2019:
In the summer of 2004, I basically pestered a couple of ESPN.com editors until they agreed to bring me on board to let me write about uniforms, which at the time was a fairly radical concept (the uniform writing, not the pestering).
Nearly 15 years later, the Worldwide Leader and I are parting ways. No hard feelings — it’s been a great ride, and I’ll always be grateful to have had the opportunity to obsess over uniforms and other oddball topics on the premier sports media platform. It has also been a privilege to interact with you, my readers, who’ve provided invaluable information, inspiration, tips and feedback. Thanks, people — you’re the best.
It seems natural at moments like these to take a look back. So as I prepare to move on, here are 10 of my favorite stories that I’ve written for ESPN (plus a bunch of “Honorable Mentions,” because I couldn’t stick to just 10). Some date back more than a decade, others less than a year, but all were a blast to work on and left big impressions on me — and, I hope, on some of you. Think of them as my personal ESPN highlight reel, my self-selected web gems.
