About

Welcome to Baseball in Fort Wayne!

This site is dedicated to the players, managers, owners, organizers, fans and anyone else who has been a part of Fort Wayne’s baseball heritage. Your love for and participation in the greatest of all sports was the inspiration for my book, Baseball in Fort Wayne (Images of Baseball), and what ultimately compelled me to produce this site.

My ultimate hope for this site is that it will become a central community resource for those who are interested in baseball in Fort Wayne and surrounding communities. Fort Wayne boasts a baseball legacy that few can match, despite there being no Major League club presence outside the memories and Fort Wayne Wizard’s affiliation as a single-A Minor League Baseball organization.

This site will be a standing tribute to that history and be a link from past to present to future. I welcome your comments, suggestions and contributions.

Play Ball!
