The Hardball Times Joins FanGraphs by David Appelman July 5, 2012 I’m pleased to announce that The Hardball Times will be joining the FanGraphs family. The Hardball Times has a long-standing tradition of excellent baseball writing and research, and we’re extremely happy to have them as part of our team. Dave Studeman and I plan on continuing the excellent tradition of bringing talented researchers to a broader audience. THT will continue to operate as a separate site, keeping intact the strong THT brand. Over time we’ll make some changes and more tightly integrate the two sites as we see fit. We’re really excited about the great work that will come out of our combined organizations. Dave Studeman’s THT announcement can be found here.
