How Does Baseball Buddha Make Money?

You have been seeing advertising on my blog posts, social media, and in the descriptions of videos, etc… I am doing all these things for a reason and that is to generate revenue, the links to different products on Amazon, Lids, SwingJuice, etc… are programs I signed up to do, I get a small commission if you click on the link and purchase a product.

Additional, I have been upgrading my website and social media platforms the last couple of month. I have learned to create simple movies that I am sharing on my YouTube channel (Subscribe Here), I also created a podcast called Ballpark Confidential (Follow Here), I have been creating T-Shirts that I am selling on the website (Click Here).

With a YouTube channel you need to get a minimumn of 1000 Subscribers who consistiently watch 4000 channel hours a month, that is why it is imperative to subscribe to the channel and watch some of the content, will I ever get to 1000 subscribers? I don’t know, I just like the challenge of it, keeps me motivated to produce better content, once I reach those goals, I will be able to montize. It normally takes 2-3 years before you get to that point, I produce content on nights and weekends, I find it new and exciting while I am learning.

I have my podcast on all the podcast platforms, I need to get people to follow and listen, normally you need 50-100 followers before you can montize, so please follow me on one of the platforms and I promise my product will get better the more I learn.

I have always wanted to create T-Shirts, I am doing that on my website shop, I can make a few dollars per shirt, I have a girlfriend who is a fashion stylist, she has been sharing her opinion of the styles, again the more I learn the better they will be.

I will defenitely post when I make my first few dollars, it does take time and money to create content, I am enjoying it. Please click on the links you see if the product is of interest to you, I don’t get paid for clicks, I only get paid if you buy something, check out the T-Shirts and if you have any ideas or suggestions please utilize the comment box or section.

Our Team – The Epic Story of Four Men and The World Series That Changed Baseball

by Luke Epplin

The riveting story of four men―Larry Doby, Bill Veeck, Bob Feller, and Satchel Paige―whose improbable union on the Cleveland Indians in the late 1940s would shape the immediate postwar era of Major League Baseball and beyond.


In July 1947, not even three months after Jackie Robinson debuted on the Brooklyn Dodgers, snapping the color line that had segregated Major League Baseball, Larry Doby would follow in his footsteps on the Cleveland Indians. Though Doby, as the second Black player in the majors, would struggle during his first summer in Cleveland, his subsequent turnaround in 1948 from benchwarmer to superstar sparked one of the wildest and most meaningful seasons in baseball history.

In intimate, absorbing detail, Luke Epplin’s Our Team traces the story of the integration of the Cleveland Indians and their quest for a World Series title through four key participants: Bill Veeck, an eccentric and visionary owner adept at exploding fireworks on and off the field; Larry Doby, a soft-spoken, hard-hitting pioneer whose major-league breakthrough shattered stereotypes that so much of white America held about Black ballplayers; Bob Feller, a pitching prodigy from the Iowa cornfields who set the template for the athlete as businessman; and Satchel Paige, a legendary pitcher from the Negro Leagues whose belated entry into the majors whipped baseball fans across the country into a frenzy.

Together, as the backbone of a team that epitomized the postwar American spirit in all its hopes and contradictions, these four men would captivate the nation by storming to the World Series–all the while rewriting the rules of what was possible in sport.

Stealing Home

by Eric Nusbaum

A story about baseball, family, the American Dream, and the fight to turn Los Angeles into a big league city.

Dodger Stadium is an American icon. But the story of how it came to be goes far beyond baseball. The hills that cradle the stadium were once home to three vibrant Mexican American communities. In the early 1950s, those communities were condemned to make way for a utopian public housing project. Then, in a remarkable turn, public housing in the city was defeated amidst a Red Scare conspiracy.

Instead of getting their homes back, the remaining residents saw the city sell their land to Walter O’Malley, the owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Now LA would be getting a different sort of utopian fantasy – a glittering, ultra-modern stadium.

But before Dodger Stadium could be built, the city would have to face down the neighborhood’s families – including one, the Aréchigas, who refused to yield their home. The ensuing confrontation captivated the nation – and the divisive outcome still echoes through Los Angeles today.

Guaranteed Rate Field

I visited Guarenteed Rate Field on May 1st, 2022 – White Sox vs Angels. I created this video to show the stadium, it is just me walking around the entire stadium amongst the crowd, it is for people who are baseball fans that haven’t been to a White Sox game, it will give a feel of what it is like to be at a game.

I will be doing these videos through out the year, mostly I want to learn how to edit video and learn the tricks to produce a decent film, this is quite lengthy, I recommend to just start watching, it was never intended to be watched from start to finish, skip through it, or just play it in the background. Guarenteed Rate Field is very unique and has some very cool sight lines, it is the oldest “new” park in Major League Baseball, opened in 1991.

Please share and subscribe to my YouTube channel, also go over to the Baseball Buddha Shop @ http://www.baseballbuddha.com/shop and check out our T-Shirts, we are designing different ones everyday. Thanks for your support!

Baseball Buddha Restart, I’m Back Baby!

Some might have noticed that I have been posting quite a bit on social media lately.  I have decided to restart Baseball Buddha, I have been working the last 8 years for a company, I have given it my all, I enjoy what I do but I realized I need to turn my brain off from work on occasion. 

I want to lay out my goals for this restart and what social media platforms I am going to utilize. A lot has changed in the last eight years, some things I have kept up with and some I haven’t, but one thing hasn’t changed and that is my passion for the fan experience of baseball.  I love the game, I love the teams I follow but I really enjoy exploring the different experiences around the game.  

I have a YouTube channel I now understand how to use, I have some things on the channel from 8 years ago which I have left on it, I still have my Instagram and Twitter accounts, I have created a podcast account on Spotify that also connects to other podcasting platforms.  I continue to have my website, I have improved the user experience.

I have goals I want to meet, the biggest thing is to have an outlet for my creativity, I love to write blog posts, I like constructing stories however I believe people have moved on from blogs so I want to learn how to create videos and recordings that people my age would enjoy.  Thus I am learning movie making and audio editing.  

Another goal is to keep what I learn in perspective, I am not looking to grow this as a business but only utilize it as a passion, as my brand and vision, I believe if people create their own thing and learn from their creative side the world becomes a better place.  I do want to grow my following, especially with the over 50 crowd since it is the fastest growing segment and a lot of social media is geared to the under 50 crowd.  

I will be doing simple things I find enjoyable, i.e. I started a podcast called Ballpark Confidential, all it is, is the sounds of the ballpark and game as I walk around, I find it relaxing to listen to, current podcast is of the game I attended at Dodger Stadium on Opening Weekend, this week on Friday it will be Wrigley Field and then Guaranteed Rate Field on May 13th, please find it on Spotify (Ballpark Confidential) and hit the follow button.  I have some other ideas for the podcast but I wanted to start simple.

Please check out Baseball Buddha on YouTube, my current projects are like the podcasts but with the video footage and some other things I have learned as I create the videos, please subscribe to the channel, my goal is to get to 1000 subscribers in the next year.  

I have always wanted to sell T-Shirts, I am able to design and sell my creations on my website, go to baseballbuddha.com/shop to check out the current designs, more will be added in the future so please check back, I also will be posting on Instagram and Twitter so please follow me on those sites.  

I am going through my blog posts form 2014’s Baseball In America Tour, I have highlighted some of the best posts, if you enjoy short stories and baseball you might like them, I also am collecting all the links to the Newspaper, Radio, and TV interviews I did in 2014, I was surprised they are still on the internet and also by how many I did, a lot of them I didn’t even see, so I will be posting those as I come across them.  

Again thanks for your support, I will try not to overwhelm you with a bunch of stuff, I enjoy talking about my baseball experiences, everyone likes to be known for something, mine is kinda of goofy, as I look back on 2014, I can definitely say now that it was a mid-life crisis, most people knew but I was adamant at the time it wasn’t…
