Why Classic Sports Journal?
Because you love sports, follow a certain team, or still cherish a hero or two. But you've noticed that memories fade and facts get lost or lose their importance over time. That is, until now.
So pick an e-book and find out when a rule was changed, where a team moved, what record was broken, or when a scandal broke out! On a personal level: When did your favorite rookie first appear, get traded, or retire? Take a year-by-year journey and follow the legends, the stars, and one-year wonders. Who were the champs? Who won the MVP?
It's true: 'context is king!' So take note how each sport changed over time. There's a lot in each e-book. Now's the time to journey!
