BP Unfiltered

A Brief History of BP

by Ben Lindbergh

Baseball Prospectus has been around for awhile. And while we're very proud of the work we're doing today, we're also proud of the work we've done in the past. Some of you have been reading BP since the beginning. Others have subscribed more recently. Maybe some of you are visiting for the first time for our Free Friday promotion and don't know anything about us. Regardless of how long you've had a subscription (or whether you have one at all), if you want to brush up on our history and progression from unknown outsiders to respected publishers of intelligent, irreverent baseball commentary, watching this video would not be a bad idea.

Christina Kahrl is one of our founders and probably the person who's spent the most time at BP (with the possible exception of Dave Pease). She's now an MLB editor and author at ESPN.com. Last month, Christina made a brief presentation about BP at AAUP 2012, a Chicago convention organized by the American Association of University Publishers. This is that presentation, which serves as a pretty good BP primer.

Unfortunately, there's no way for me to link to a certain point within the video, but it's easy to find the BP-related part. Christina comes on at 26:10, and her presentation runs through 33:00.
