News from the News & Record

A few weeks ago, Andy told me about Edwin Rodriguez’s web site and his web savy – I said, why not write a post about it….. Tom Keller of the News & Record beat him to that last Saturday. Of course, being a story about the web, you can’t find it on the web.

Here’s the recap: Rodriguez has channeled his baseball knowledge on to the web for his fellow Latin Americans. He was told it would cost $7,000 – he did it himself after buying a $35 book. (Proving once again anybody can do it.) The website is in Spanish – http://www.hitboricua.com; you can read it courtesy of Google – Translate. The site is optimized for INTERNET EXPLORER and does not work well under Firefox and Google Translate; but then we are not the target audience. It looks cool from what I can see.


Jim Schlosser did a piece on War Memorial Stadium and Bill Self. It is on line.


Finally, the News & Record’s parent company (Landmark) has sold the Weather Channel for a reported $3.5 Billion to NBC. The News & Record was not part of that deal; however, they may be sold as soon as this week.

    Here’s the article: http://beta.news-record.com/content/2008/07/05/article/hoppers_boss_stays_connected_with_web_site

    After reading it, I take back what I wrote above. From the limited quote in this post, it made it sound as if what one was seeing at http://www.hitboricua.com was the product of a book and two months of effort. As the N&R article makes clear, that described Rodriguez’s initial effort eight years ago. That eight years of experience and more than $35 in software could lead to what we see today, that I can believe.

    My previous comment is not appearing. Maybe it is flagged as possible spam because of the hyperlink. I’ll try again without the link:

    I found the N&R article online.
