Jayson Stark’s thoughts Do we even remember life before Retrosheet? I spent 15 years pasting every day's box scores in a notebook so I could refer back to them. Then something great would happen to evoke memories of some game in the past, and I'd look in my book and it seemed like HALF of those games I'd forgotten to paste in there. So I'm eternally grateful that Retrosheet pasted every one of them in its notebook out there in cyberspace. For triviologists like myself, it's like hitting the lottery every time I click on it.
