Thank You, Henry Chadwick

For those whose morning ritual includes scanning through the sports page of your daily newspaper to find the box scores, today is your opportunity to give thanks. 150 years ago the original Baseball historian, Henry Chadwick, invented the box score.

The above plaque is from his grave in Brooklyn, New York. Check out this link to see the rest of his burial site. It is adorned with Baseball equipment and memorabilia.
