Since 1995, The Idea Logical Company has drawn on its Web savvy, publishing know-how, and sports expertise to produce distinctive content in both traditional and new media.
Our centerpiece project is BaseballLibrary.com, an innovative full-text archive that now contains over three million words of baseball history. Built on a framework of over seven thousand profiles and a complete day-by-day chronology of baseball history since 1845, the site has grown to feature rosters, daily scores and highlights for every twentieth-century baseball team, dozens of baseball book excerpts, and hundreds of original historical features.
The site is maintained using a proprietary content management engine that allows information to be quickly and easily added in numerous contexts throughout the site and on other digital platforms. In Fall 2001, The Idea Logical Company produced special viewer’s guides in multiple e-book formats for FOX Sports that complemented the networks’ coverage of the baseball playoffs and World Series.
Other baseball-related projects include:
- Once Upon A Diamond: When Baseball Came of Age, a 2001 calendar developed in co-operation with Hudson Park Press for the New York Public Library and reissued in 2002.
- The Little Giant Encyclopedia of Baseball Quizzes, published by Sterling Publishing in 1999.
- A paperback edition of The Ballplayers, the seminal enclopedia of baseball history first published in 1989 by William Morrow which later provided the framework for BaseballLibrary.com.
- A host of Special All-Star Game, World Series and Hall of Fame projects for CBS Sportsline, FOX Sports and MLB.com.
