You may recall that my son Nick, a baseball analyst and former college pitcher, launched a wildly popular website last year called PitcherGIFs. In it he presented animated GIFs of every pitcher in the majors throwing every pitch they had, along with Nick’s insightful analysis. The site was taking off like wildfire, until a dispute with MLB shut him down.

Undaunted, Nick has come back with a brand-new site, specifically tailored to “fantasy-league” enthusiasts, in which he will once again be offering his expertise to baseball fans — including a new statistical tool he’s devised for ranking pitchers. He’s launched a Kickstarter for the new site, in order to raise the modest sum he needs to build out his infrastructure.

Have a look here — and if you can spare a small contribution, I’m sure Nick would be very grateful. If you have any friends who are baseball fans, please do let them know!

    Instead of using “Plug” for your post title, you could have used “Pitch”.

    The “I’ll change the color of my mustache, thereby becoming a different person” strategy was hilarious. Too bad I’m not into baseball.

    Nick’s a funny guy. For more on the moustache theme, here’s a short flick he made when he was in high school.

    You’re right, Henry! How could I not have thought of that?

    I’m losing my touch…
