& Baseball


Here are some other Lardner-related links that I've found to be useful. I haven't included sites which list only the most basic information about Lardner; rather, I've tried to find sites which offer unique information. Please send me any I've missed:  stopping@swmich.edu.


Ring and the Baseball Hall of Fame

"The J.G. Taylor Spink Award" Awards have been given since 1962, honoring writers for "meritorious contributions to baseball writing." The Preseident of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America presents the award at the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

Ring won in 1963, second to Spink, former editor of the Sporting News, in 1962.

The Sporting News

The Sporting News page has a nice historical archive. The page listed here, 1900-1920 mentions Ring and gives an example of his "Pullman Pastimes."

Classic Sports Hall of Fame

Classic Sports
A pretty good brief biography. It is nice to see him included.

The Cosmic Baseball Association 1998 season roster.

Ring is a rookie centerfielder for the Eden Bohemians, a fantasy baseball team.

The Moonlight Graham Fantasy Baseball League has a Ring Lardner Division.

I contacted Joseph Williams who named the divisions, and he explained that Ring is his his favorite "classic-era" baseball writer (Other divisions are the Kinsella and the Harry Caray, other favorites). He says he considered "Speed Parker" from one of Ring’s stories as a division title, but the other founders of the league thought the name sounded too ‘druggy’(Dave Parkers cocaine problems were surfacing then)".







General The San Antonio College LitWeb Ring Lardner Page

Lists the major works by and about Ring and gives a nice plug for this site.

Creative Quotations from Ring Lardner

Lists five quotes. I like the page because it gives sources for the quotes.



Online Books Eldred Press

Eric Eldred of Eldritch Press has been putting a lot of Lardner full-text editions on the web. His first was YKMA and now there are others. 

He has
You Know Me Al http://eldred.ne.mediaone.net/rl/unomeal.htm
Gullible’s Travels http://eldred.ne.mediaone.net/rl/gullible.htm
"My Roomy"
"Alibi Ike"
"Golden Honeymoon"

"Haircut" online

I'm pretty sure this violates copyright.

Offers links to credits, production photos, set renderings, and pictures from the opening night party.

The Princeton, NY Production of June Moon

A good background article about the blacklist.  It is an article by Dan Georgakas from the Encyclopedia of the American Left (University of Illinois Press, 1992).

Internet Movie Database

This one seems more accurate than others.

Ring Lardner Junior High School

I have no idea what this is. I believe it is set up to handle Lardner-related discussions, none of which I can find. I included it because I like the name.



Friends Hank's World of Fun & Interesting Stuff

Interesting links, including one to us.
