The Baseball Undertaker

Ever wonder what the Baseball Undertaker does in his spare time?  Author Bill Lee (aka the Baseball Undertaker) wrote to us about his recent travels:

“During the month of September we visited 130 cemeteries in five states, taking photos of more than 400 gravesites of deceased major league baseball players, along with GPS readings and locations of their final resting place within the cemetery.”

The results of Bill Lee’s years of research and traveling can be found in the enormous The Baseball Necrology: The Post-Baseball Lives and Deaths of More Than 7,600 Major League Players and Others, with additional data on his personal website,
