I reside in East Brunswick, NJ where I live with my wife Joanne, my seven ferrets and two cats. I recently lost my beautiful mother Rose on February 21, 2015. You can view all of my families Findagrave tribute pages in the internment section. If you can, please feel free to leave a note for them!
After a fifteen year career as a radio announcer, I decided to change careers and I am now a webdesigner and developer. I am also the proud owner of the largest independent baseball website on the world wide web called "The Deadball Era", the only website dedicated to deceased major league players located at http://www.thedeadballera.com/. I am also a Nationally Recognized baseball researcher and baseball necrologist and a member of The Society For American Baseball Research (SABR) I worked as a researcher for a TV project for ESPN on the 1919 World Series Scandle. My Baseball Site has been featured in the January 4th, 2002 issue of Sports Illustrated along with many periodicals Nation Wide.
I have authored a new book on major leaguers called 'The Cooperstown Chronicles: Baseball's Colorful Characters, Unusual Lives, and Strange Demises'. Along with Baseball Research and Necrology, my hobbies are baseball and hockey, collecting classic New York Islander hockey jerseys, raising tropical fish, and cruising on my Harley whenever I get the chance.
I have also made many friends through the findagrave family including my good buddies Joyce Ellsworth, Russ Dodge, Stew Thornley, Jim Tipton, A.J. Marik and Connie Nisinger.
Thank you so so much Frank, Yes, I have finally moved past all the awful things. It means so much to me that I can take photos for people. PLEASE let me know if there are any other baseball hero you need photos for here in South Florida, I am your gal for the job.
RE: Cal Abrams Dear Cal, I am so very sorry I had not replied before now. I had a life changing event and this is the first time I have been able to be back on Find A Grave. So if you used the photo, fantastic, if NOT yes please do. Also please be back in touch with me so I know you did read this. Take care and thank you so much. Enjoy Melanie
Matty McIntyre Frank, I recently found and photographed Matty McIntyre's headstone on Staten Island. His parents and brother are next to him. I have linked them all together. Just thought you would like to know. Memorial# 15151279. Thanks for the memorial, Earl.
