This site would not exist without the inspiration and encouragement I received from Jon at Mets by the Numbers.
Of course, I found MBTN through Paul Lukas' brilliant Uni Watch blog, where no piece of sports uniform minutiae is too small. The nifty image to the right of the page appears courtesy of Paul and his graphic mastermind, Scott M. X. Turner.
If you're a baseball history buff, a uniform enthusiast, or if you just like looking at pretty drawings, you might want to check out the Baseball Hall of Fame's Dressed to the Nines exhibit, a searchable database of the uniform designs worn by every Major League baseball team during each season from 1876 to the present.
If you're a diehard Orioles fan, your first stop on the web should be Roch Kubatko's School of Roch blog. Roch has been covering the Orioles for the Sun since 1997. He's either got an iron will, or he's a glutton for punishment. You decide.
There's also lively fan-driven discussion to be had at Camden Chat.
Baseball Reference was an indispensable resource in my research. It's full of stats, lists, and all sorts of fun time-wasters, like the Oracle of Baseball.
Of course, Baseball Almanac is also chock full of arcana related to our National Pastime. Their team rosters by uniform number served as a jumping-off point, though they do have a few inconsistencies. Nobody's perfect, I guess.
If you want to take a stroll down Memory Lane, I strongly recommend Baltimore City Paper's feature "Presenting the Most Useless Orioles of All Time", which first appeared in April 2002. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wonder what Brad Pennington is up to these days.
The bloggers at Fire Joe Morgan used statistical analysis, logic, and simple common sense to combat bad baseball journalism.The site has gone dark, but the archives are an entertaining read.
The first thing I loved about baseball was baseball cards. Ben Henry's Baseball Card Blog reminds me is everything that's right about those colorful pieces of cardboard. Its no longer being updated, but again the archives are posted for your perusal.
Few sites have made me laugh as hard as The Dugout, which satirizes major leaguers in the format of an AOL-style chat room. It's bizarre, it's offensive, it's silly, but most of all, it's funny.
Another great site for sports satire is DJ Gallo's SportsPickle.com. Unlike his work for espn.com, it's completely uncensored.
I've lost many hours of my life to the witty and informative Deadspin sports blog, which has the executives and talent at ESPN looking over their shoulders. A few Deadspin regulars broke away to start a great baseball-only blog, Walkoff Walk.
Lastly, if you want to read my thoughts on a wider variety of topics, I'm a contributing editor at Crunchable, an online literary magazine of sorts.
