Marjorie Adams In Memoriam Episode
Show Notes

In memory of a very special person who will be sorely missed.

Not long ago we had the privilege of speaking with Marjorie Adams who we referred to as baseball royalty.  She found this to be funny, but we really did feel honored to speak with the great-granddaughter of a man who made major contributions to the game of baseball and whom Marjorie was determined to have elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame where he rightfully deserved to be.

On July 7, 2021, Marjorie Adams passed away. We wanted to honor her by replaying our conversation while asking Jeff "Pinetar" Kornhaas to share some of his special thoughts and memories on their wonderful relationship and the many ways she touched the lives of so many people.

The following is from the show notes of episode 87.  When we released the episode we thought we would have the chance to speak with Marjorie many more times as well as to meet her in person.  Unfortunately, neither of those would come to be and we are grateful for the small amount of time we got to talk.     

Marjorie Adams is the great-granddaughter of Daniel Lucius "Doc" Adams who wrote the 1857 "Laws of Base Ball" as well as creating the shortstop position and is considered to be one of baseball's founders.  The original "Laws of Base Ball" were sold at an auction in 2016 for $3.26 million.  Despite all of this, he is still not a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame, but if our guest has anything to do with it, that blatant over site will soon be corrected.  This interview would not be possible without the introduction provided by our episode 86 guest, Jeff Kornhaas who we all know as Pinetar.  Pinetar sits in with us and adds his wonderful contributions to a conversation we hoped would never end.  Please enjoy our talk with someone we consider to be as close to baseball royalty as one can get.

Marjorie would have liked for you to go to the website, and learn more about her great-grandfather, Daniel Lucius "Doc" Adams and provide your support for her efforts to have him enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.  Please do what you can to make that a part of her legacy. 

We truly appreciate our listeners and hope that all of you are staying safe.

If you would like to contact the show, we would love to hear from you.
