The British Baseball Hall of Fame’s Board of Electors are delighted to welcome BaseballGB site editor and chief writer Matt Smith into their numbers. Matt will begin his role as an Elector from the 2013 class onwards.
Matt’s BaseballGB website was founded in April 2007, building on a WordPress-hosted blog created in February 2006. Its purpose is to publish on all aspects of baseball from a British perspective. As part of the site’s remit, Matt has written dozens of articles on domestic and international British baseball. In addition, Matt has helped with the chronicling of British baseball history, writing two chapters and contributing historical research assistance on two more for the 2012 Project COBB book Nine Aces and a Joker. Matt is without doubt the most prolific British-based baseball writer of the modern generation.
