dark ballfields

Illuminating the dark ballfields of the past with the light of research.


Our first major project is Temple Cup Baseball. We are developing a tabletop baseball simulation game, website and book that will be a comprehensive examination of the National League from 1894 to 1897.


Dark Ballfields Press is accepting submissions for future publication. We are interested in book-length manuscripts related to baseball history, preferably about players, teams, or leagues that no longer exist. For more information, please contact us.


Dark Ballfields is a historical baseball research firm. We conduct our own projects as well as help others with their research. We also recently started our own press to help talented baseball writers share their work.


If you need baseball research assistance, drop us a line below. We will be adding our research library which currently numbers over 2,700 titles to Goodreads as time permits.
