Researcher and author John Freyer reports that his interest is still Chicago-area baseball from back before the National League.  Among other feats, he has accumulated every Chicago box score between the years 1859 and the Chicago Fire in 1871.  He also enjoys researching New York baseball before the Civil War.  John has an ongoing project of bat and ball games over history, from Wicket to Wiffleball, but hasn't determined whether it amounts to a new book. Currently, John is working with others to establish a Chicago Baseball Museum, and serves as the project’s ad hoc historian.
