This marks the 755th time I’ve sat down, typed up something, and not thrown it away. Normally, I would celebrate 750 comments, but 755 is a baseball number, 750 isn’t. The number 755 commemorates the home run total of Henry Aaron and thus seems to me to be much more appropriate a number to commemorate.
Back when I began typing these in November 2009 I thought I knew a lot about baseball. Turns out that I was wrong. My knowledge was pretty good, but nothing like what it is now. And there is more than one reason for that. First, I’ve done a great deal of research and have been stunned by how much I’ve learned. But as importantly as that is how much I’ve learned from the people who read me and comment. I’m forever finding some nugget that I didn’t know and that leads to more research and more knowledge. Equally important are the other bloggers that I read with frequency. It’s astounding how much info is out there and how much the people I read know. Again that leads to more research and more knowledge on my part. I have to admit that over the period from November 2009 through today I’m certain I’ve gained more wisdom than I’ve ever imparted.
So a thank you to people who read this and comment. A thank you to the people I read. May each of us continue and may each of us push the frontiers of knowledge outward.
