Introduction This site is intended to document the history of the old American Association baseball league which existed in the midwest from 1902-1952. It included the Columbus Senators which became the Red Birds in 1931, the Indianapolis Indians, and the Kansas City Blues, as well as the Louisville Colonels, Milwaukee Brewers, Minneapolis Millers, St. Paul Saints and Toledo Mud Hens. The Almanac has been published on paper since 2001 and maintains a small subscriber base comprised of baseball history fans and public institutions. Please consider becoming a subscriber to this unique publication. Rates are $24/1 yr. or $42/2 yrs. Back issues are available and are described on my primary website at www.almanacfield.com. Please direct all inquiries to Rex Hamann, email: pureout@msn.com.
Interests baseball history, science, politics, literature, music
Favorite Movies Birdman of Alcatraz, It's a Wonderful Life (anything with Jimmy Stewart), To Kill a Mockingbird, Cider House Rules, Eight Men Out. Also love most things with Burt Lancaster and Gregory Peck, not to mention Gary Cooper, Olivia DeHavilland and Greer Garson. Love the old stuff, black & white Film Noir, Hitchcock, Sherlock Holmes, other dramas.
Favorite Music Classical. I'm into listening to the Beethoven piano sonatas right now, hoping to become thoroughly familiar with each of them. Am now through the first 16 out of 32. I will occasionally get into some bluegrass when the spirit moves me as I was a real bluegrass hound out of high school and through my thirties. Went through a country phase during the '90's.
Favorite Books Don Quixote, To Kill a Mockingbird, Cider House Rules, Grapes of Wrath, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek
