Website of the Week: Routine Baseball


Our website of the week today is Routine Baseball.

This site offers a great variety of t-shirts and other items including hats, hoodies, women’s wear, and other items.

To me it is difficult to find an interesting and new take on the baseball t-shirt, and Routine Baseball has done just that. They use some baseball slang for their t-shirts which makes it interesting. Don’t understand what the slang means? Don’t worry. They have a section called Slanguage which details the slang they use and pretty much every other bit of slang used in the game.

So head on over and check out the great selection of new and interesting items they have.

Website of the Week: Clubhouse GM


This weeks website is the Clubhouse GM.

Jeff and Jeremy at the Clubhouse GM bring you an interesting articles on a variety of things.

Jeremy is a huge fantasy player and with that comes a lot of information with scouting players for fantasy leagues. They have rankings,comparisons, and all sorts of stats that any fantasy player would find helpful.

Prior to the season they did season previews for almost all the teams that I found very interesting, but my favorite part of the site is their “Get to Know a Pro” section. Here they interview players from all levels and there are usually some interesting comments made.

The site is definitely worth a look if you don’t know about it already.

You’ll find the guys on Twitter as well at @ClubHouseGM or on Facebook.

So head on over and check it out. I’d highly recommend reading the Get to Know a Pro series that I really enjoy.

Website of the Week: Replacement Level Baseball


I found this site from a post on Facebook by a friend, and I am glad I did. Replacement Level Baseball is a nice site filled with a lot of good anaylisis. Chase, Jeff, and Jessie cover the world of baseball in an interesting and entertaining way. While the site is filled with good commentary, my favorite part is the podcast.

I am always looking for a good baseball podcast that covers the entire world of baseball and not necessarily one particular team. They have hit a home run with theirs as well. What really turned me on was a recent interview done. Jeff and Chase interviewed Corey Conflenti, center fielder for the Lodi Old Rags of the Italian Serie B League. It’s a great interview that everyone would enjoy.

Each brings a different talent and personality to the table and its a great combination. While I have only recently found this site, I am going back to read and listen to some of their old work, and I suggest you do the same.

Each of them can be found on Twitter and the group can be found on Facebook as well. But above all, don’t forget to check out their entertaining and thought provoking podcast on iTunes.

Website of the Week: Baseball Pilgrimages


One of the inspirations for me starting my personal site of Baseball Journeyman was a site I ran across years ago called Baseball Pilgrimages. Graham began visiting ballparks in 2001 for 2 weeks of vacation. At the start of his trip he received a phone call that changed everything. He was laid off from work. So what did he do? He toured some baseball stadiums and has been going at it ever since.

Graham brings you reviews and stories from ballparks all over the country. He doesn’t limit it to just MLB stadiums, but instead has ventured out into some great places from the low minors to independent leagues.

You can find Graham at his site BaseballPilgrimages.com and on FaceBook. So head on over and check out some great photos and stories from some of the countries greatest, and worse, ballparks.
