Welcome to Zisk Online!

Welcome to Zisk Online, the internet home of Zisk Magazine. Intending to cover baseball from a fan's perspective, the first issue of Zisk was published in the summer of 1999. Zisk is now published twice a season, with the latest issue, #10, available in April 2005. Here you'll find articles from our previous issues (without the snazzy graphics, which Steve puts a lot of time into, that make the print version a highly sought after collector's item) as well as a running commentary on the New York Mets 2005 season by editors our Mike Faloon and Steve Reynolds (yeah, we ripped off the idea from Stephen King and Stewart O'Nan's book Faithful, but who says we're original?) and other web-only content.

Zisk, the print version, can be ordered online through the following great folks:
Clamor
Quimbys
Razorcake

Thanks for reading!

Yay! Zisk is online! The site looks good.

Oh, and an important baseball anniversary is coming up on April 8th: Hank Aaron's 30th anniversary of hitting his 715th home run. I read that it's "Hank Aaron night" at the stadium (and guess who they're playing? The Mets.) I wish I could be there to see Hank. How cool would that be? (and that's the only time I will ever say "I wish I was in Atlanta.")

Great to see Zisk online. Finally getting through the back issues I ordered. #8 was especially good.

I do have a comment on the Zisk guide to rooting for some other team. I grew up in Chicago in the 60's & 70's and was a big White Sox fan, They were almost always horrible, except for the mid 70's Southside Hitmen. (Plenty of great stories from those years, I DID attend the Disco Destruction double header vs the Tigers..stole some of my sisters disco albums to get in). But in the late 70's I moved to Minnesota to go to college (and play hockey), and fell in love with the Twins. A better organization (in my opinion), and a great place to watch a game (the old Met stadium). My mom still loves the Sox, and I still like the Sox, but I have made Minnesota my home (lived here longer than Chicago now...), and the Twins, Vikings, Wild my teams. It's nice to see the Sox with the best record in baseball. Just you wait, the Sox win the AL Central, the Twins get the AL WIld Card! You heard it here 1st!
As much as you Mets fans hate the Yankees, I hate the Cubs ALMOST as much. They stole Harry Carey from us! Among other things...
Cant wait for the next issue, I have turned a half dozen Twins fans on to your mag, and hopefully they will start subscribing.

woohoo! who needs baseball tonight when you've got zisk online? well, since i don't have cable or an internet connection at home i guess the whole discussion is moot. i'm happy to see this site but sad about The Series Of Unfortunate Events a.k.a. the Oakland A's 2005 season.

Why the name Zisk for the magazine?

It was named after Richie Zisk, one of our publisher's favorite players of the 70s.
