Yesterday I found out one of my new co-workers…who is a very quiet, unassuming, almost un-approchable individual…is one of the foremost authorities on 19th and early 20th century baseball! He’s published 2 books and will be on ESPN Classic tomorrow night at 8PM!! David Fleitz’s two books are both available at, Shoeless – The Life and Times of Joe Jackson, and Louis Sockalexis – The First Cleveland Indian, are both regarded as landmark books on baseball. At Glasstech, he’s a system’s analyst/programmer….and like I said, he’s just very quiet and a little “different.” Just goes to show you it’s hard to judge someone on a first impression! Check out David’s website for more info on him, on baseball and his books.
