Watching The U.S. Mail For Baseball (Season 2) – FIRST UPDATE!

by Paul Semendinger

February 28, 2021



Last year, I decided to try to re-live that experience. Baseball has complained about the lack of fan interest, smaller crowd sizes, less revenue, and so much more. I thought to myself, “Well, what are the teams doing to draw up interest?” I then took the time to send e-mail requests to every team asking for promotional materials. The response to all of that was hugely disappointing. Very few teams replied to my inquiries. The Yankees did not reply nor send any promotional materials. I chronicled all of that in the articles linked below.

Since the responses I received last year by e-mail were so underwhelming, this year I decided to request materials through the regular U.S. Mail.

As the items come back to me, hopefully over the coming days and weeks, I’ll chronicle all of that here.



Earlier this week, items from the Florida Marlins arrived at my home.



As of today, the only team to have sent any promotional materials are the Marlins. I am hoping that the month of March brings lots more baseball mail.

Here are the items from the Marlins’ Fan Pack that were sent to me:

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
