Chicks Dig the Long Ball is about the weird side of baseball. I tend to think the 'weird side' of baseball is every side of baseball. The nicknames, the baseball cards, the commercials, the umpires and occasionally, even the action on the field.

This site is part NotGraphs, part Grant Brisbee, part Sam Miller.

In time, these influences combined with my own background and interests, will make this place something that stands on it's own. That background includes a degree in advertising, my day job as a graphic designer, and countless hours of MLB The Show. All of this colors my baseball fandom and is exactly why this site is named after a commercial.
