“RBI” SHALL REIGN FOREVER!
Great article in Sunday’s Chicago Tribune about the lasting power and glory of “RBI Baseball”. Some dudes here in Chicagoland even have a bi-annual tourney. Fellas, if you happen to stumble upon this post, can I play? I threw several no hitters with Mike Scott. You’re happy for me–I know. Check this out:
But the epicenter for all things RBI is dee-nee.com, a site and tournament begun by northwest suburban resident Gantry Zettler. It’s where LeDonne discovered that a whole pocket of RBI players lived within 10 minutes of his house, and none of them knew each other. That told him something about the game’s widespread appeal.
All the guys “still play this game independently,” he said. “I can understand if a group of friends play it; they’re all in the same place. But for all these people to be living this close, and still playing, and still interested enough to go find online that there’s a tournament to get into?”
