The previous BaseballGB article in the Project COBB category demonstrated the historical stretch of the British baseball chronicling initiative by reaching back into the 19th Century, but this latest post illustrates the equally strong focus on recording more recent times.
BaseballSoftballUK (BSUK), the agency overseeing baseball’s development in Britain, has been diligent throughout its existence in retaining artefacts from British baseball history, and many of the digitized holdings on the Project COBB website come from the shelves of Ariel House, where the company is based.
The latest batch of materials that BSUK has been kind enough to scan in and supply (thanks go to Tim and Trevor for the hard work here) comprises nine missing artefacts relating to national finals from the current era of the game. The lists includes programmes from 1998 and 2001 through 2007, as well as a wonderful poster from 2002.
All of the newly added materials can be viewed via the Project COBB national champions archive.
