Since 1998, I have written thousands of posts, Nine to Knows, stories, and anecdotes on Billy-Ball.com. I love doing it. I love the e-friendships I have made, the in-person relationships that have grown, and the respect that this site has gotten from the baseball community.
One of things I have tried to do, over the years, is share my love of the game. In the real world, “knowledge is power.” In baseball, “knowledge is fun.” With that in mind, I have been focussed on keeping my offerings free to whomever wants to read it.
Unfortunately, I live in the real world and everything has a cost. So, I am asking for your help to keep this a free publication by making a contribution to the Billy-Ball-Tip-Jar.
If you have enjoyed my writing, won bets as a result of the info I shared, looked better to others as a result of sharing things you’ve learned here, or, and this is really important, shared something with some kid that helped made her or him a baseball fan, here’s your chance to help keep this a free publication
I’m frequently asked how long it takes me to write this each day, I answer that you don’t want to know. But what you should know is that my wonderful wife Max works very hard and that this wouldn’t happen without her support and love and support (yes, I know I said it twice but there are two different kinds of “support”).
When I started this 15 years ago, nobody had heard the word “blog,” and I still don’t use it for my writing that I always try to view in a professional manner. If you have enjoyed these seemingly never-ending reports from the Bill Chuck Files, please consider making a donation to help me say thanks to Max and my family, and keep this a free effort.
Whatever you choose to contribute is appreciated, but whether you give or not, I’ll still be writing and you should still be reading.
BTW: If anyone wants to buy Billy-Ball, the bidding starts at $1m
