About Bill Chuck, Billy-Ball his ownself
Since the start of the 2000 season Bill Chuck has been writing baseball for his friends, most of whom he has never met. He is a self described “Baseball Newstalgist” who brings past fans to the present, present fans a glimpse of the past, and hopes to create many baseball fans for the future.
Bill lives in Brookline, MA and is an expatriate of New York City. Despite living just two miles from Fenway Park, his current house of worship for over 30 years, he still feels like a stranger in a strange land.
His wife Max is a loyal Red Sox fan and his daughter Jennifer, an ardent Yankees fan; Bill is Switzerland. His eldest daughter Elizabeth lives in NYC and remains above the fray.
With his very talented friend Jim Kaplan, Bill is the author of the book “Walkoffs, Last Licks and Final Outs – Baseball’s Grand (and not so Grand) Finales” Published by ACTA Sports in 2008.
Bill is a regular contributor to the Bats blog found on NYTimes.com and Nick Cafardo’s Baseball Notes column found in the Sunday Boston Globe.
He has a dog named Mookie, a cat named Wilson, and another cat he wanted to name “Buckner” but his wife felt enough was enough and so the cat is named Allie. They all help him with his writing.
