Baseball Digest to Unlock its Archive and Make 78 Years of Issues Available Online at No Charge
Iconic Publication is Committed to Keeping Fans Entertained During National Emergency
Access to 78 years of Baseball Digest is available online until July 15
Tuesday, March 31, 2020 – As fans await the return of Baseball on the field, Baseball Digest will unlock its archive and make its complete inventory of more than 800 issues from 1942 through 2019 on its baseballdigestarchive.com website available for free.
“While we are committed to continuing to publish our print edition just as we have through wars, recessions and other events that have challenged our nation over the last eight decades, Baseball Digest wants to provide this free service to baseball fans as we all work together to overcome the COVID-19 virus,” said Norman Jacobs, Baseball Digest’s publisher since 1969. “Just as Franklin Roosevelt felt it was important to ‘keep baseball going’ during World War II, we feel that continuing to print and making our entire inventory available online may, in some small way, help fill the void until we can all return to the ballpark.”
Made possible by its partners—eBay and eMagazines—Baseball Digest will make its entire inventory of more than 800 issues from 1942 through 2019 available beginning on Tuesday, March 31. Unlimited access to the archive site at no cost will continue until at least July 15 and fans can take advantage of the free offer by going to the link baseballdigest.com/free.
